Dear OCS fellows,

I've been thinking about working on adding power devices knowledge to OCS
for years.
Following the last Ubuntu Developer Summit, I know have an "excuse" to do

My below proposition is related to the above blueprint. So please keep in
mind that the target is also to be able to provide these info to OCS, so
that it can in turn provide these to Cobbler / Orchestra.

Power devices are UPS, PDU, server power supplies and solar controllers, as
supported by the Network UPS Tools (NUT) project.
NUT is the major free software for dealing with such devices:

NUT has some internal automation that allows to extract these information
(USB IDs, SNMP sysOIDs, IPMI PSU,...) from the drivers (so no declaration
redundancy), in order to generate support files (udev, upower, ...) or
tools such as the NUT scanner:

So, would you be interested in working with me on this topic?
How can we proceed?
Which kind of integration would be best, ie providing a formated files, or
using languages binding or program calls?
