Hi folks,

a long time ago I started writing a driver for the Canoscan 4400F
(which is GL843-based) and development has come fairly far along. It's
almost usable even. However, the project has languished since
February, and it doesn't look like it will change anytime soon, for
two reasons:

First, I've started capturing documents with a camera, and rarely if
ever need to scan photos, so the flatbed scanner has not seen any use
at all for several months. And second, I simply have not had much time
to spare lately.

It sucks to have to admit it but by the way things are going, someone
else will probably have to finish the driver. :/

If anyone is willing to take over the project, please go ahead and
have a look at the git tree. You'll notice that most bits are there,
but that it needs some odds and ends and perhaps a rewrite before it
can be included into SANE.

The repository can be found here:
http://github.com/andr345/gl843driver and it will stay there as long
as necessary.
