Dear all,

I'm happy to announce that the XSane source code is back online.

In the summer of last year I mentioned that Oliver Rauch, XSane author
and maintainer, had taken xsane.org off-line due to the burden imposed
by the GDPR[1].  I also mentioned the possibility of hosting the XSane
code under the SANE Project's "umbrella".

Since then I have been working on-and-off with Oliver to get the source
back online.  Oliver has kindly provided an archive of all the releases
he could find on his disks.  I have used that to reconstruct the code's
history as well as possible, cleaning up a bit along the way.

You can find the result at


Hope this helps,
