yep. I think is still used by FOSDEM tho

ACK. saw it once, dropped it because of limited integration and only
hosted possibility, which at this point puts too much effort on us. We
have quite simple requirements actually and programming a small simple
CMS for limited functionalities may take less time compared to hosting
a big thing with annexed risks. Also I prefer to pay a reasonable fee
to service providers eventually. This because we don't have a lot of
capacity and volunteering should be focused on Devuan itself.

it passed some review by our colleagues who used it for the DECODE
conference and does not require any registration for buying a ticket.

also a requirement for us is to have paypal and IBAN as main payment
methods, which match already means for donation: this because it makes
our work for financial due diligence easier since it suits the current
flow, but also because we have bad experience with Stripe as processor
(half of CC transactions don't go well and people rebates and create
work on our side)

sure this is a good idea in general

I'm trying to reach nextime because the DNS server we used to change
zones is down ATM however I assume this is possible.

overall I think not, you have not much time and the precious you have
available is best dedicated to Devuan tasks. I hope you come to give a
talk BTW! :^D
