We only have a few open items that I think should be resolved before releasing 2.7.3. The list grew a bit in the past week, but we'll cover that later. Here is the list:

 * #93: Devices Dumps Library improvements <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/93>
 * #158: Powerware BCMXCP advanced features <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/pull/158>
 * #185: insecure storage of password in nut-monitor favorites file <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/185>
 * #187: Wrong in/out voltage repported for PowerCom KIN2200APRM <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/187>
 * #190: upsd: NSS SSL only working in debug mode <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/190>
 * eaton_epdus branch: <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/tree/eaton-epdus>

Most of these are from the GitHub 2.7.3 milestone: https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues?q=milestone%3A2.7.3

#93: The scope of this issue is a bit broad (encompassing a Gen3 dummy-ups driver, etc) but for 2.7.3, I think we can call this closed, so long as there are no issues pushing this to www.networkupstools.org. The current auto-generated DDL is here: http://buildbot.networkupstools.org/~buildbot/cayman/docs/latest/ddl/

#158: I will rebase the commits, and replace the author's email address with the GitHub username at noreply address, but if someone has additional Powerware-based UPSes to test, that would be handy.

#185: Debian patch is on a branch; I will bump the version number and merge.

#187: This is a driver-specfic fix, but I haven't had time to work through the logic from the vendor driver. This is not listed on the GitHub 2.7.3 milestone - should it be?

#190 is a bit more complicated. We are still in the initial investigation stage, but it seems that this may have crept past the Ubuntu automated test suite. Running in the foreground is a bit of an ugly hack, but if it works with the Ubuntu init scripts...

I'll let Arno cover the eaton_epdus branch. Also driver-specific (snmp-ups), so should not affect the rest of NUT. (Is this the same as issue #188? <https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/188> )

Glad to hear that Arno will have more time to work on NUT again!
