Not sure which list this came from, but this just got fwd'd to me, and I
wanted to clarify the issue..

If the update takes longer than expected and the UPS is running 'low',
evolt will be the first thing to go off to ensure the other machines
that carry a higher priority *dont* go down. As an example, if there's
45 minutes of power left in the UPS, and it looks like the electrical
updates will take longer than that, evolt servers will get shut down so
the rest of the servers will be able to stay up longer than they would
if the evolt servers were allowed to stay on.

I don't know if thats much clearer, but if not, lemme know
