Thank you. That solved the problem. I put this line into sources.list:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie non-free contrib

and then had no trouble installing firmware-iwlwifi. However, another
package excluded from devuan is task-mail-server. Adding the above line
to sources.list did not provide access to this package. So am I
compelled to install procmail, exim4, fetchmail, spamassassin
