This database stores detailed information regarding scanners, their drivers and Pyinsane's support of those.
Pyinsane allows programs like Paperwork to use scanners on many platforms (Linux, *BSD, Windows, etc). However, many scanners and scanners' drivers have their own quirks. This database helps identify them. It also helps figuring out which scanners are already correctly supported, and which ones need improvements.
A test program has been created to collect data quickly and automatically: IronScanner.
You just have to run the program, select the scanner, define some basic test settings, and run a test scan. It will then send the results to this database.
Test scan reports are published under the license WTFPL v2. By submitting a report here, you accept to publish it under this license.
