Now the new Ubuntu PPA is online:
https://launchpad.net/~sane-project/+archive/ubuntu/sane-git and I'll
stop providing updates to my PPA

The new PPA will be maintained by a group, so changing personal
responsibilities won't affect the users anymore.

The last update from my PPA will automatically change the package
manager configuration to the new PPA, so you don't need to care about
switching the PPAs.

Hope this helps.
