The NUT RFC process: Since there are so few of us, I choose the lightweight 
"Informational" process rather than the much heavier "Standards Track" process 
which requires a separate mailing list, and lots of formality.  I also choose, 
in order to keep things simple, to use the regular NUT mailing list rather than 
create something new.  I propose to continue with this simplicity.

Our "Document Shepherd" has agreed with this.  If at some later stage, with much 
manufacturer involvement, a formal standards track RFC were needed then it would 
be perfectly possible to go through the formal process with the (then) existing 

When this mailing list has reached "rough consensus and working code", I submit 
the text to the IETF process and the ISE get involved.  (Note: rough consensus 
means 95% agreement and not 50% as in the ISO/IEC.)  In the short term, I will 
release a new draft this week in order to satisfy an IETF timeout.

Could you please submit your comments, suggestions, text, recommendations, 
ideas, ... to this list.  I will pick up comments which I have received 
privately and introduce them to the list.
