My understanding was that this is the mailing list to discuss such things.

I could learn about git, but I don't fancy setting up a git server.  I've 
been retired now for nearly 20 years and I would prefer spending more time 
on other things.   I'm not sure that git activity would generate more 
discussion, or acceptation.

If the young guys pick up the suggestion, that's fine, but if in some 
future release of NUT, AT's are executed in random order, I have a 
solution which will keep the heartbeat working, so it's not a problem for 

Best Regards, Roger
