Forwarding this mail to DNG too. I think this is relevant to the discussion.

Dear Jaromil,

You are really exaggerating this issue, all for no good. I've been present from
the early days of Devuan, and Dan was very much instrumental in creating the
first Devuan release: jessie. I've been contributing since the beginning and
have(had) a build daemon for package builds. Later on Katolaz (and others) came
in and contributed majorly, especially for the ASCII release. The April fool
joke by Katolaz was maybe not the best stunt but let's get on with Devuan, and
don't force him or Dan to resign, please! I don't know about the private emails
sent, but reading the dng list the spammer was not Dan it was Mike Bird, a
person unknown to contributing to Devuan...

The number of contributors to Devuan is very small, and with this kind of
accusations, the number will decrease further, making Devuan extinct. Is that
your goal?

BTW: You yourself has not been especially present in contributing to the Devuan
releases, how come? And nextime disappeared, why?
