No. I prefer Network UPS Tools to any of the other UPS monitoring daemons.

Fortunately, there are other alternatives, like nut. > I am not a maintainer at the moment though and > the procedure of becoming one seems not absolutely clear to me: Please visit the New Maintainer site at nm.debian.org.

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. > The documentation is somewhat contradictory. 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. Yours, Luca -- Luca Filipozzi [dpkg] We are the apt. Resistance is futile. You will be packaged.
