I have bought a new scanner, Canon Canoscan Lide 220. It is checked as completed and supported in Sane-Backend development git. I know very well that the exact time can not be given but how long does it take it "aproximately" to come to Fedora 21 repos? Should I wait or try to compile it by myself?

Thanks in advance.

The best solution is suggest update the package from bugzilla... If the baby does not cry, do not receive milk. ;)

Most package maintainers wait for a new upstream release to update a package. Most do not like carrying git snapshots unless absolutely necessary.

For major package upgrades, we have the updates policy here:
