Cool! In fact, with this information, you can easily make a customized
NUT lists search engine with the following HTML snippet:

 <form action="http://www.google.com/search" method="get">
 <input maxlength="2048" name="as_q" size="25" type="text">
 <input name="as_oq" type="hidden" value="nut-upsuser nut-upsdev">
 <input name="domains" value="lists.alioth.debian.org" type="hidden">
 <input name="sitesearch" value="lists.alioth.debian.org" type="hidden">
 <input name="btnG" value="Search NUT lists" type="submit">

Arnaud, could you put this on the NUT homepage somewhere? E.g. at

I tried putting this directly on the list homepages on Alioth, but the
server deletes any custom forms. But it would be useful to have a
search page on www.networkupstools.org, and then we can link to it
from the list archives.
