The package just needs to have the /etc/init.d/nut-server script edited to h=
ave the LSB headers refer to eudev instead of udev.

I=E2=80=99m guessing this is not the only affected package with this issue.

Is it possible for the eudev package to include some compatibility for this t=
o avoid renaming udev->eudev in individual packages?=
