[sane-devel] Proposed Upgrade (pu) branches on GitLab

I've been mail bombing the list, going through unassigned open tickets
and pushing pu/* branches to my clone of sane-backends at GitLab.
There are ten pu/* branches there as of writing and I have another five
or so in the pipeline. And I still have about 50 unassigned tickets to
look at so there's probably more to come ;-)
I would appreciate it if some of you could take a look at these branches
and merge them to Alioth's master.
There is one must-have: pu/fix-make-dist-targets. Without it you won't
be able to roll a tarball. It also fixes `make distcheck` so you can do
builds outside of the top-level source directory.
There are two no-brainers: pu/fix-*. The numbers refer to the associated
bug reports. I'll close those after I see the respective merges of these
In the "IMNSHO-should-have" category:
- pu/epson-epson2-usb-split because the epson backend doesn't claim to
support *all* the scanners epson2 does --> @alessandro
- pu/magicolor-4690MF-support because it adds support for a new scanner
- pu/protect-niash-option-access-315132 because it fixes a slightly far
fetched security issue --> @stef
For MIPS/musl portability, there's:
and there may be another fix coming for u_char/u_long issues.
- pu/bit-depth-reporting-fix which fixes a corner case in scanimage's
- pu/install-umax-pp-tools which addresses something Johannes pointed
out on the list.
I've tried to attribute all the patches to their respective authors and
timestamp them to match the first appearance that I am aware of. While
waiting for some/most/all of these to get merged, I'm off peering over
unassigned tickets again.
Hope this helps,
