So help fixing systemd related regressions in Debian proper?
That would be good for not only Devuan but all derivatives that are not
systemd only (which in practice means not Ubuntu and Tails).

I haven't done a single upload to Devuan -- I consider this
counterproductive. Providing a regression-fixed stable release is very good
-- but for unstable, anything that's not a mere staging ground is bad: it
lets the systemd crowd tell people "so go to Devuan", making regressions
grow (they have an excuse), thus increasing _your_ workload. And the
manpower isn't that big...
