Upgrade went pretty smoothly on a VirtualBox VM I use weekly. XFCE desktop.

No "backports" for beowulf?
Err:8 http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged beowulf-backports Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]

It seems wine32 cannot be installed on devuan 3. This is not a
deal-breaker for me, but just mentioning it as something upgraders may
want to be aware of.

wine32:i386 : Depends: libwine:i386 (= 4.0-2)
libwine:i386 : Depends: libpulse0:i386 (>= 0.99.1)
libpulse0:i386 : Depends: libsystemd0:i386

I won't even go into what happens trying to install libsystemd0:i386

This may have been asked/answered already, so sorry if it is a repeat,
but what happened to gksu? Not really liking pkexec as an alternative
(it's asking for another user's password, not the root one).

Package gksu is not available, but is referred to by another package.

Otherwise things seem okay. I will try ascii->beowulf on a laptop today
(also using XFCE desktop); and _maybe_ a (GUI-less) remote server over
the weekend.
