Hi Szymon,

4 months have passed without any developer standing up (and thanks to
Charles for reminding me this).
from there, you have 2 options to improve your support level:

- do it yourself: test your devices with NUT, create or improve driver(s)
and submit patches.
Providing publicly protocols and information also help.
This is not a hard task, and we can provide you advices and guidance to do

- some NUT developers may provide paid professional services.
Up to you to propose a "bounty" and see if somebody is interested.
