This is just a heads up that the libsane_deps.patch that you apply
during the build of your Debian packages no longer applies.

If you try to apply it, it'll fail because I pushed a change that breaks
that patch.

Do not be alarmed ;-)

The change I pushed makes that patch unnecessary.  You can safely remove
it from the list of patches you apply.

In case your interested, the change in question is

  commit a2f1cc1c82e1ca4dfb04c386a6d51cfad3934d33

    libsane: Only depend on and link in the kitchen sink if needed

    There is no need to depend on and link in all the various dependencies
    for whatever backends *might* be preloaded if none are.  Distributions
    habitually rip these out, rightfully so, to reduce the list of package
    dependencies.  This will achieve the same while still doing the "right
    thing" for builds that do preload one or more backens.

  If you have a similar patch, you're equally affected and should dump
  that patch ;-)

Hope that helps,
