I agree with Louis.

I would even suggest to use date-based versioning such as 20.1.0 where
20 is the year, 1 is the month and 0 is the patch version. Major and
minor releases don't mean much in the case of sane-backends as it's just
a collection of many separate scanner libraries, so we might as well use
the numbers to signify the release date.
