 Hi JJim,

I've opened a PR for the driver.list (VFI 3000 TG). I will check the nut-ddl and open a PR with the data from upsc,etc.

Best Regards,
Strahil Nikolov

 For DDL (Device data dump library) it is relatively simple: outputs of upsc (or better more tools, scripts available to automate) a dir/file with standardized naming should be PRed to nut-ddl repo. This covers much of the backlog where people thankfully posted such info on mailing lists and github issues and some PR comments. Needs lots of time and focus, but is not "hard".
Then there's also HCL and/or drivers.list file in main codebase, I did not fully figure out criteria for its maintenance, was too busy with code and CI.
And possibly, like in this case and some more posted, adding USB VID/PID combos to driver sources (and testing them, and regenerating udev rules and similar data) so that devices are handled out of the box. This is somewhat straightforward when a subdriver exists, so no new code is needed. But lately there were too many collisions with same USB interface chips used by unrelated incompatible devices, and/or with chips using some bogus (unregistered) IDs like 0xffff, 0x0000, 0x1111 or 0x0001 and hoping to be unique.

Hi Jim,

I didn't see any guidance how to proceed with PRs. Maybe you can shed some light and I can propose the change for my Powerwalker VFI 3000.
