Hi all,

I had expected at least some reaction to my announcement[1] of the
switch to libusb-1.0 as the new default for USB but, failing any, I
assume that everyone is happy and all is well.

Since the switch, I have:

 - added an Alpine Linux builder to my GitLab CI setup.  This compiles
   against the musl C library.  Results are available for all builders
   via the pipelines[2] page.  Just select a build and navigate to the
   build:alpine-3.4-musl results page.

 - added a PDF version of the SANE Standard document (also available via
   the website) and refactored the conversion of that document a bit.  I
   dislike keeping derived files in the repository so added the logic to
   convert *.fig files and dropped the generated *.eps files.  Obsoleted
   LaTeX bits have been replaced as well.

 - fixed a bunch of compiler warnings and made all backend code use the
   same __sane_unused__ define instead of also using UNUSEDARG.  We are
   getting closer and closer to zero warnings on build:debian-8-full.
   By all means, have a look at the remaining warnings on that build and
   beat me to fixing them!

# Still looking at and for a decent replacement for dlh to convert the
# SANE Standard document from LaTeX to HTML.

Hope this helps,
