Interesting to know. have you informed them that they would get support for
mostly all OSs except windows (but they already support it)?

considering these info, the entry I'll submit in the compat list is the
"IVT"    "scd"    "1"    "SCD series"    ""    "ivtscd"

the "1" means that the support level is "

for testing purpose, you can run the component (driver,upsd,upsmon) from the
source tree.

Now since you came with the first NUT supported SCD, I've made a src.rpm for

it's limited to the nut (only including ivtscd) and the nut-client packages.
it's also untested, but it should suits your needs...
a few instructions:
- install it as usual (rpm -ivh ...rpm)
- build the package using : rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/nut-ivt.spec

you'll get the result in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/
