[sane-devel] Scanner stocks

Hi devs,
Yesterday I won a canon lide 30 for 50p on eBay. I thought it would be fun
to play with, but it occurred to me that I don't know if, as a project, if
we have many scanner examples for testing and verifying regressions.

Its a bit difficult writing software for hardware that we do not possess.
It is also a bit scary making anything but trivial changes without hardware
to retest on.

We have some open issues about the canoscan lide 220 but I don't know if
any member here actually possesses one of the scanners it being supposedly
a gl848.

Some of these machines, particularly some of the older ones can be picked
up for peanuts with a keen eye and a regular look on eBay, Craigslist and
Gumtree. :D

Has anyone considered putting together a more official collection of
representative hardware for device dev work?
