It's been more than four years in the making :-/
Feel free to add to the wave, BTW.

Thanks for refering to my work in the README. Yeah, my claim to blame!

BTW, I've been meaning to refactor the builds a bit now that jessie is
oldstable. My builds still start from Debian's jessie ... wondering how
that long will keep working. Also, monthly rebuilds make little sense
if none of the packages changed. On the other hand, "testing" and
"unstable" might warrant more frequent builds.

Oh well, some many ideas, so little time. I'll be busy with getting
sane-backends-1.0.29 released before the end of January first anyway.

Hope this helps,
