I'm very, very sad to see you say goodbye.  Thanks for all the time and
effort you've put into the pixma backend.  Based on the frequency with
which it popped up here on the mailing list as well as in GitLab issues
your leaving the SANE Project will have quite a bit of an impact :-(

I see you're still listed as a project member on GitLab.  Seeing that
project member can leave on their own account, is that intentional?

Do you still intend to work on any issues that are assigned to you?

        bits of the pixma backend?

Again, sorry to see you leave.
