Subject: [DNG] devuan.org is back
As promised, on Apr. 1st 2019 at 1:04:19pm UTC the Devuan world
started to make sense again. Please check:


The gopherholes will remain online for the time being. The "pwned"
page is still available at http://www.devuan.org/pwned.html.

Again and to clarify once and for all: this was just an April fool. No
machine was compromised. No content was moved, deleted, or tampered
with in any way. Noone got access to the Devuan infra. No package or
mirror was affected.

I apologise if somebody thought the joke stretched a bit too far: I am
responsible for that. I thought all the clues were clear enough, but
apparently they were not and some people got too stressed about it. I
am sincerely sorry about that.

Pranks have always been an essential part of the hacker culture, and
like it or not, Devuan has been brought to all of us by a bunch of
passionate hackers working long nights, not by a team of serious white
collars in suit and scarf doing 9-to-5.

I will definitely make sure I will not make such a mistake again in
the future.



P.S.: Please, do not let the world outside take away from you the
pleasure of having a good laugh, at any cost. Stopping to laugh is the
first step to the grave.
