Stef mentioned:

so I took a peek at the mirrors (didn't even realize there were any!)
and noticed their "Latest News" entries:

  www3  2011-02-13 SANE-Backends-1.0.22
  www2  2005-08-07 SANE-Backends-1.0.16
  www1  2012-08-19 SANE-Backends-1.0.23

Only www1 appears to be sync'd with sane.alioth.debian.org.  The other
two "mirrors" may actually be doing SANE a disservice and should maybe
not be mentioned anymore, updated and/or taken off-line.

Hope this helps,
