### mason * A consistent bit of confusion, especially for folks coming from Debian, is that we have our "product" in /merged, with /devuan being a view into the sausage making process. Something to consider would be making /devuan an alias to /merged and using another name for /devuan. Ideas: /overlay, /debianfork, /devuanoverlay, etc. The win would be users randomly assuming /devuan based on the model Debian presents, which happens in the field quite often. * (bgstack15) While this sounds great, it should have been done in the past. We have the inertia of three releases using /merged and /devuan, and I would hate to make the documentation even more complex by saying, "If you're at Chimaera and newer, use /devuan, but if you're running Beowulf or older, use /merged." * (gl) It might not be ideal but it's what we have. Just remember the confusion that was generated over the changes in the urls to packages as that was restructured. * (onefang) We still have plenty of support requests for ancient things like CC mirrors and other deprecated and no longer existing package repo names. I would suspect more often than not users just stick with whatever the installer put in sources.list, which is likely why we have these support issues for the old way of doing things. Changing things yet again just adds to the support requests. * (mason) Result of discussion: don't implement this. * IRC stuff * parazyd added ops bits * to #devuan, #devuan-www, #devuan-dev, #devuan-offtopic, #devuan-conf * for plasma41, LeePen, rrq, fsmithred, bgstack15, golinux, mason * Ban trackers: these will automatically remove bans after a configurable time, which can be further configured for individual banned/quieted folk. * https://github.com/freenode/eir * https://github.com/freenode/eir/blob/master/doc/bantracker/operators-guide.txt * https://github.com/ncoevoet/ChanTracker * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots/Spec/Bantracker * My current favourite is Chantracker for ease of banning/quieting. Regardless of which we adopt (if any), we could run one ourselves, or we could use the official Freenode eir (but no quieting) or a Freenode-staffer-run ChanTracker. * (mason) Result of discussion: don't implement any of these as yet. * Suggestion: Simple, explicit policy. No sexist/racist/hassassing commentary, and keep offtopic chatter on #devuan-offtopic * (gl) for reference though not for quite the same environment: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=17 * (mason) I like that wording.
### Xenguy * 404 page comic/image now removed. * Point release: * 7 existing web site pages to be updated (using a separate local git branch currently). 5 of 7 pages are currently committed locally on that branch. * 1 new page '3.1.0 Beowulf Point Release Announcement' needs to be created, judging by existing announcement links on this page: https://www.devuan.org/os/explore.html * Will copy the 'ASCII Point Release Announcement' page to a new page, and update the content to reference Beowulf as best I can. Will then ask golinux and fsmithred, and any others in #devuan-www who are interested, to review the page content before finalizing the page.
