Mike, please speak for yourself. I get it: This incident caused you to
take evasive action, and now you have serious doubts about using Devuan
further. That's fine: There are other sans-systemd distros and BSDS
that might be more or less secure and reliable than Devuan.

But you can't dictate that everyone using Devuan in production must
drop Devuan unless a set of further procedures are followed. Move if
you must, but have the respect to allow each of us to handle this our
own way.

And just for the record: This was a REALLY stupid "April Fools Joke"
and I trust that the VUAs refrain from any further hijinks on April 1
or any other time.
