no, amen is fine, and working for me for some years now.
it's now working and propagated...

the point is there: which MGE are we talking about?
what was once called MGE UPS Systems is under final destruction to the
profit of APC.
what was the essence of MGE for NUT/FLOSS is what is now called MGE
Office Protection Systems (and somehow Powerware and Eaton).
And yes, there is a lot of hostility from them, and I'm personnaly sad
to see what Schneider has done to MGE and my ex colleagues (and still
friends)! And also what APC (+MGE) has (not) done for FLOSS...
But that's a personal opinion.
Sure, I would still prefer to see those 3 letters from Bruce' setup though ;-)
