Indeed, another change concerning to the Contents-*.gz is needed for
devuan derivatives. This is due to the fact that devuan
has already merged the Contents of debian into its own Contents, so that
they are not required anymore by any devuan
derivative because it would be redundant[*]. Therefore, i've just
defined a new tuple named contents in lib/config.py with values:

contents = [ 'devuan, 'debian' ]          (for DEVUAN)

contents = [ 'X', 'devuan' ]                  (for X = heads, gnuinos...
or whatever you want)



[*] As opposed to the binaries *Packages.gz*, pulled from
"http://deb.devuan.org/devuan" -containing only those packages built for
devuan and
non-existent in debian), the Content-*.gz will be pulled from
http://deb.devuan.org/merged". Or maybe i'm doing also an extra step for
the binaries?
In any case, the repo "packages.gnuinos.org" is working as expected so
far, with one outstanding issue regarding the Contents.
