Looks good to me. Which email address do you want on the commit, gmail or inaccess.com (which is on the original driver commit)?

I don't see a strong correlation between faster release cycles and faster upstream adoption.

I understand the interest in a new release. However, the distros have had plenty of time to upgrade to 2.7.4, but we are still cherry-picking patches to apply to distro packages of 2.7.2 and 2.7.3. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing - I would much rather see a component like NUT get upgraded carefully, than be subject to frequent updates that need to be re-tested on production equipment.

This was also just discussed on nut-upsuser:
