I like to run stable (Debian) on our production machines, which this
server with ups is destined for. However, since nut isn't a particular
security sensitive package (is it?), I could probably build a version
from testing or unstable to use. The version in testing is 2.4.1 and I
suspect the version in unstable isn't very different from that. I'll go
ahead and build a version of 2.4.1 for lenny (backports doesn't seem to
have nut in it) to see what happens... Also, we'll be upgrading to
squeeze when it comes out (hopefully) early this coming year since we're
needing newer versions of other packages.
