Hey there,

I've just caught up on the 'Canon LiDE 220' about that scanner not yet 
being supported.

This work would be complicated.

I'm not familiar with sane development so am wondering if you can expand 
on that a little? It would be great to know if it is just a case of 
hanging on to the scanner until the chip revision is supported, or if 
there is a blocker that means it will remain unsupported for the 
foreseeable future.

Is there an estimate you could give for when it might get supported?

I am one of those stupid people that buys hardware before checking 
driver availability, so as the owner of an LiDE 220, I'd be happy to 
help in any way I can.
