Blueprint changed by Arnaud Quette:

Whiteboard changed to:

* Powerman - PDU support (http://powerman.sourceforge.net/):
  - Debian ITP (done)
  - Debian package upload (mostly done, upload underway)
  - Ubuntu sync (waiting)

* Network UPS Tools - NUT:
  - DeviceKit-power integration (under talk with Richard Hughes, scheduled for 2.4)
  - dummy-ups repeater mode (communication link redundancy and forwarding) (done, trunk)
  - base PDU support (~6 SNMP units) (done, trunk)
  - extended PDU support, through libpowerman (done, trunk)
  - sub devices (present UPS' outlets as devices, to allow per outlet subscription and management) (approved for 2.4, but only if available in time)
  - virtual devices (composite devices, made of several UPSs (parallel, serial or sequential redundancy modes) and/or PDUs) (under consideration for 2.4)
- configuration improvements: provide some library / backend to develop a config wizard (python and/or debconf). configuration is definitely NUT's weakest point, apart from the HAL/DK-p backends! (approved for 2.4, but only if available in time)
