Thanks, I already saw the merge request you created.  Let's create
separate issues and MRs for each category/backend combination for which
there are still warnings so fixes can hit master sooner.

Holiday period? -> plenty of free time, no? ;-)

Seriously though, what's ready for release goes to master, the rest can
stay on a branch until after the release.  Or, we can create a separate
release branch sometime early January if that is more convenient.

# WRT to the SANE Standard conversion, that can progress independently.
# Only after that's all been taken care of do I think we can rip it out
# of the sane-backends package.  For 1.0.29, we will release with the
# SANE Standard included (as we've done for ages).

Hope this helps,
