Hello SANE developers

(Please CC me, I'm not subscribed).

Thanks for working in making scanning easy!

Yesterday I happened to be in the need of downloading and compiling
sane-backends in a Debian box, and realised that you (upstream project) use
Debian's Alioth for the development management (repos, mailing lists, bug
tracker, maybe more).

I don't know if you are aware that Alioth is deprecated, it will be shutdown in
May 2018 probably, and all the Debian contributors and upstream projects that
use its infrastructure should consider migrating the different services to
another place.

Please have a look at this wiki page:


in order to see the alternatives for the different components of Alioth  and
take the corresponding measures.

Best regards
Laura Arjona Reina
