Hi all,

I'm new to this list. My name is Daniel Franke, 28, mathematician from 
Germany. I'm quite experienced in C-programming, so I feel I could try to 
contribute ...

I own a HP Scanjet 4570c and would like to use it with SANE. It's not yet a 
supported device and information seems to be quite limited. There was an 
announcement in june last year [1] -- nothing else can be found in the 

I already checked out SANE's CVS sources and output of 
$> sane-find-scanner -v -v
is similar to that listed at [2]

Is currently anyone working on this specific driver? If not, is there any code 
to pick up? Any docs from HP someone already acquired? I would also 
appriciate some hints/documentation about "GL841/GL646" (which seems to be 
related) [3].

The bug report [4] has a "SnoopyPro" [5] log attached, but I don't have access 
to any windows box. Any hints how to decipher this (binary) log?
