Devuan Weekly News I
Ok, so that I'm not useful by packing, yet, I'll try to be useful in other ways.
So welcome to Devuan Weekly News. Weekly issue I also corresponds to Week 1 of the project.
There has been some discussion about the name 'Devuan' being the best (e.g. ). No conclusive answer has been given in favor or against.
Fraud accusation and requests for personal and financial data
There has been a very long and harsh thread starting at  with one side requesting data about the people who runs the project and is asking for donations, and the other side explaining that some information will arrive on its own time, since the project has just started (), that more info is needed but the ways of requesting were unappropiate (), that the information is in fact available (), and finally some information was clearly expressed at .
There has been some work around logos for the project in the thread at  with proposals around a mouse, the Huffington Horse, a wizards version of the Debian logo and a wavy spiral, in several colours, mainly orange and black. No conclusion has been achieved, yet.
Inclusion of systemd
Another hard thread, but not so harsh as the Fraud one, was started at  with a statament that systemd should be supported in Devuan as an option to users, since users' freedom to choose an init system should include systemd. Clear stataments were done about the issue at  saying that systemd will be supported, and later clarified at  saying that Devuan is not to 'Put in effort to keep systemd out because we hate it' but 'If systemd upstream or any interested party puts in effort to make systemd fit in with the bazaar approach, then we should welcome them with open arms'.
Thre was also a discussion about if Devuan should ship udev at all, starting at , with proposals for eudev and plain devfs ().
There was a short thread about how Devuan has been received at 4chan, specifically at /g/, at .
How to work on Devuan
There was a request at  asking for information about how to really contribute. No information about how to code was provided, but the priorities were clearly pointed at that we need an installer ().
Ok, that's all for today. Let's hope next week we all have less harsh to read (and less to read in general) and more to work on.
