Well, I think we agree on the fact that although we (as a NUT team) would
like to see uniform packaging for all distributions, in reality this is
unlikely to be happening anytime soon. What I meant to say, is that as
long as we know which variations there may be (the list of people using
one of them, so that we are informed of any changes), this should be

This might be a problem for the 'nut', 'nut-server' and 'nut-cgi'
packages. Since openSUSE only uses the first, if people upgrade to 'our'
packages and only install 'nut', the lack of 'nut-server' and 'nut-cgi'
might lead to surprises. In this case, this will mean there is no more
server to connect to after the upgrade. The configuration files will most
likely be saved with an .rpmsave extension though. The only way to prevent
all this, is to not split up client, server and CGI packages. We could
still keep the SNMP and XML versions separate without problem.
