For the record, the changes you pointed to were contributed to a SANE
"driver" for the Canon DR-X10C, a general purpose scanner.  The changes
were provided to the SANE Project, an open source project that makes its
"drivers" available to anyone under rather liberal conditions.

Whether this scanner is used in the Dominion ballot counting machines has
not been substantiated AFAIK.

The two incidents I am aware of were about untallied/uncounted ballots
(in Georgia).  That means the ballot counting machine hasn't processed
them.  Meaning, the SANE Project's "drivers" weren't involved in that.
FTR, my BBC newsfeed claims the incidents were due to human errors.

Please point out what part of our code you think is fraudulent and state
why.  There are now four _knowledgable_ people who have looked over the
code changes and didn't find anything fishy with it.

Only when you start making claims without facts to back them up ;-)

Nothing whatsoever.

# I believe the Floyd County of your "incidents" is in Georgia, not in
# Nevada.

Hope this helps,
