Ooh ow.

yep, that's also why your proofreading work is so important guys!

Looks good.  Unless I've missed something, that means the current
candidate version is as attached.

including Christian's further mod. (name cap.), this suits me fine.

There is only one minor thing about:

Package: nut-xml
Architecture: any
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}, nut (>= 2.2.2)
- Description: network UPS tools - MGE XML/HTTP driver
+ Description: network UPS tools - XML/HTTP driver

it's better to remove the "MGE" mention from the synopsis because:
- MGE UPS SYSTEMS is mostly dead,
- MGE Office Protection Systems (aka MGE UPS SYSTEMS units up to 10 KVA) has been bought by Eaton. And Eaton is now standardizing on its name.
So in the end, both MGE will disappear :(
- finally, as for the SNMP driver (and some others), it's a generic driver. so the more generic and non exhaustive we are, the less changes in the future ;-)
