Hi Charles and NUT Developers,

As mentioned privately to the NUT Core team, I'm almost back, thanks to
Eaton renewed involvement...
That still implies to catch up my late on the many topics and the roadmap.
But finally, this time, it should be for real.

I've updated that one, closed the last task that makes sense, and postponed
the others for now (Gen3 dummy-ups and call to massive users reports), to
not block 2.7.3 more.

I'm checking to get a hand on these legacy Eaton devices.
My current workload is a bit too crowded to however commit on being able to
test for 2.7.3 before Thursday March 19th.

there is still at least 1 RFC on a set of new variables (input.*.load,
input.*.realpower, input.*.power) for ePDUs, prior to merging.
Note that ePDU measure such data on the input, hence these new variables...
!! we may consider the present mail as the RFC to speed up things !!

yeah ;)
