Congratulations to all who contributed his/her ideas, code and at least
time for the new SANE release.
After having some time with reflecting my after-work activities, I
decided to say Goodbye to the SANE project, especially as maintainer for
the pixma backend.
If somebody hears the calling to become a maintainer for the pixma
backend, he/she is welcome to contact me off-list for discussing any
questions about structure and functionality.
