Dear all, I am a Devuan fan and one of the DNG lurkers since a lot. I never did
anything more than trying a couple of (very smooth) test installs, but I still
follow the list and hope to become a more active supporter in the future.

Although I personally disagree with the current attitude of Daniel
(CenturionDan), at least judging from his recent emails to the DNG list, I don't
see the problem he mentions as bogus. It's quite clear now that there was a
disagreement between the caretakers about the April Fool's incident. As I see
it, there's nothing to rejoice in having two caretakers leaving the project
because of how the post-incident was managed and the harsh exchanges of comments
that followed the joke.

I strongly suggest that all the other people in devuan (I'll try to do the same)
do not engage in another competition of being childish and bullying each other
around. (Aitor, I respect you too for your past contributions, but I do believe
there's no point in merely taking sides now).

In my opinion Devuan is still a small community with a large task to accomplish,
and splits and divisions are a loss for the community and the open source in
general. While everybody is obviously free to leave if the realizes he does not
share the same goal as the rest of the project, we are still facing a crisis. I
thus believe that we should win over people who supported devuan in the past,
not fight with them. As far as I can see, if we don't do this the only winner is
the troll party.

Best Regards
