    Just to get this in before the feature freeze tomorrow:

    I'd like to see support for an environment variable SANE_DEFAULT_DEVICE
    in scanimage, which overrides the default device selection if no device
    is specified on the commmand line. A patch for 1.0.2 is available at

    It's a very small change, doesn't break anything and is very useful if
    you have two or more scanners attached to one machine, or if your scanner
    is not found automatically by scanimage.

    I've already sent this patch twice to this list (for 1.0.1 and 1.0.2),
    both times it was ignored - not rejected, but just completely ignored :-(
    Is nobody maintaining the scanimage frontend?
