..skillful, yes, on wisdom, right down there with forking off Debian
Jessie rather than Debian Wheezy, Katolaz has apologized, I totally
accept his apology, we survived stumbling across our Jessie fork, and
we will survive this and future April Fool pranks with about the same
style and finesse the judges will laugh Mike's Bird-Brained lawsuits
out of the courts of law. ;o)

..what I did: a quick md5sum -c down my devuan/devuan only
lan mirror, I don't have devuan/merged mirrored yet:
arnt@nb6:~$ cd /var/www/devuan/mirror/
arnt@nb6:/var/www/devuan/mirror$ md5sum -c ../var/MD5 >md5sum-c
arnt@nb6:/var/www/devuan/mirror$ grep -v OK md5sum-c

..no output means all lines ended ":OK", if that helps, checks:
arnt@nb6:/var/www/devuan/mirror$ less md5sum-c
arnt@nb6:/var/www/devuan/mirror$ ll ../var/MD5 md5sum-c
-rw-r--r-- 1 arnt arnt 1469035 Mar 31 04:00 ../var/MD5
-rw-r--r-- 1 arnt arnt 1119475 Apr 1 02:38 md5sum-c
arnt@nb6:/var/www/devuan/mirror$ md5sum ../var/MD5 md5sum-c
80e6b5f84d77837a953b8c0fc0a7d439 ../var/MD5
47c7978715d75472080a6edfa59f7f38 md5sum-c

...and killed my mirror cronjob for one day. Back up now. :o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
