Upstream sources and homepage 404.
Root domain http://www.garloff.de/ still functional.  Someone should probably contact upstream.

Please help me understand if this package is now simply obsolete since sg3_utils is shipping the same(?) script, also considering that sys-block/scsirastools is satisfied by either-or package, and could be cleaned up.

Because right now this package is blocking cleanup of old EAPI-5 based sys-apps/sg3_utils-1.42.

asturm: It's more complicated than that unfortunately. 

The version of rescan-scsi-bus bundled in sg3_utils is differs than the final release by the rescan-scsi-bus upstream: because it got bundled and then both sides evolved separately.

So what do to? At this point, probably remove rescan-scsi-bus and watch for bug reports where somebody depends on behavior that used to work and suddenly broke in the sg3_utils version.
