No. I prefer Network UPS Tools to any of the other UPS monitoring daemons. You
may wish to install the 'nut' package.

Ok. Fortunately, there are other alternatives, like nut.

Please visit the New Maintainer site at nm.debian.org. Specifically, you may
wish to review p://www.debian.org/devel/join/nm-checklist

We prefer that you have your GPG key signed by a current debian maintainer. If
this is not possible, alternate arrangements can be made. For example, you
could provide your Application Manager a scanned image of your
government-issued identification, signed with your gpg key. In addition, you
should provide a contact name of a 'reputable' person who can verify your
identity from that scanned image. Examples of 'reputable' persons include
University professors, employers, etc. Whether this 'reputable' contact person
is contacted is a decision your Application Manager and/or the Debian Account
Manager will make.

I hope I've helped to clarify the documentation for you. The 'reputable'
contact person is not mentioned at the New Maintainer site, but it's a common
practice, I believe.
