Proposal for removal of outdated/orphaned UPS daemon packages
Package: bpowerd (O: #176326)
Package: upsd (O: #86242)
some old fashioned power daemons for UPSs are still in database.
I'm talking about bpowerd and upsd which are not maintained
(no upstream source available), and orphaned (some bugs are 4
years old !).
Those might be removed, and supersedes by Network UPS Tools - NUT.
- is already debianized,
- is actively maintained,
- has an extensible networked architecture,
- already supports the above softwares features, and more,
- is becoming the SANE of UPSs !
To conclude, removing bpowerd and upsd would close 9 bugs
in BTS, and would contribute to make a de facto UPS power
management standard under debian.
