How RUP is different from the DRUP ?

I've always assumed that "DRUP" stands for "Distributed RUP" (which would imply that the difference is in being distributed), but it seems like the whole DRUP thing doesn't really exist (IBM/Rational doesn't seem to use the term and Google can't find anything about it). We might as well drop the DRUP from the forum's name...

It would be nice to add EUP, particularly because there is a fair bit written about it and there will soon be a new book out on the subject.

It's short for Enterprise Unified Process.
Scott's company is selling it as a kind of an extended RUP which covers more of a product's lifecycle than just its development.

So what is DRUP? I googled it and found very little. Whatis.com didn't have a clue! www.drup.com connected to an guru from Oz who wanted to know why I couldn't attend his seminar in Sidney - not exactly the staid standards body website I was expecting.... ;-)

Nobody knows... That's why we're taking it off of the forum name
