Yup, it will.

Oh, sorry I wasn't clearer about the instructions. You mentioned  
something about being new at autoconf, and I thought you were still  
using the tarballs from Buildbot.

I realized that we were probably going to break a few things in the  
process of getting this driver going, so I created a branch in SVN.  
The new SVN URL for this is 'svn://svn.debian.org/nut/branches/ 
tripplite-proto-3004'. Both that branch and the trunk have a revision  
2300, but the changes don't show up on the trunk (until we merge them  
back in later). This makes it easier for me to do regression testing  
on the UPS I have here (since I can compare the trunk to the branch).

No need to blow away your checked-out copy of the trunk - just run 'cd  
nut', then 'svn switch svn://svn.debian.org/nut/branches/tripplite- 
proto-3004' (only needs to be done once; the current SVN URL is stored  
in the working copy, as shown by 'svn info').

Then, after I check in something new, you can just run 'svn up' in  
that same directory, and it will just pull the changes (rather than  
downloading the whole thing).

Another advantage of SVN is if you make a change to the code on your  
end, you can run 'svn diff' and send the resulting patch back.

This looks correct.

Thanks for bearing with me.
