9 This where the change log for one of the sane packages is located.
11 /usr/portage/media-gfx/sane-backends/ChangeLog
13 Usually the ones that edit there are the maintainers. I think you need
14 to file a bug report and request the new version to be put in the tree
15 and eventually made stable.
17 Of course, if it is really new, it may be in a overlay for testing too.
18 Some put them in the overlay to test then move them over to the tree a
19 bit later if there are no problems or weird dependency problems.
21 I think there is a fancy command to get that info but can't recall it at
22 the moment. I bet someone will post it tho. ;-)
