Hugo> So what is planned for SANE in the short future?

My own plans are not very ambitious for the next couple of months as
I'll be busy working on another free software project (which I can't
say much about right now). But should the time I have available for
SANE become the bottleneck, I certainly would have no problem with
someone else taking over. I have no plans on "sitting" on SANE,
preventing others to do good things with it.

Yes, I am indeed waiting for GIMP/GTK 1.0 to happen. At that point,
we should put together sane-0.99, test it, and then release a fixed
version of it as sane-1.0.

Sounds good to me.
