SANE ("Scanner Access Now Easy") is a universal scanner interface.
-The value of such a universal interface is that it allows writing
-just one driver per image acquisition device rather than one driver
-for each device and application. So, if you have three applications
-and four devices, traditionally you'd have had to write 12 different
-programs. With SANE, this number is reduced to seven: the three
-applications plus the four drivers. Of course, the savings get even
-bigger as more and more drivers and/or applications are added.
-sane-backends contains documentation, several backends, scanimage
-command line frontend, and networking support. For other/graphical
-frontends take a look at sane-frontends and/or xsane.
+This package contains the SANE libraries (this means backends and
+network scanning parts) and the command line frontend scanimage.
