# Devuan meet 2021-04-15 @20:30 UTC

Present: Adam, LeePen, golinux, fsmithred, rrq, Xenguy, plasma41

## Old Business

### fsmithred
  * Need help building refractainstaller. It fails on ppc64el. Tell me
    the secret of how it's done. Need arch-independent debs for i386 and
    amd64 only.

## Old Actions

## New Business

### LeePen
* NMU of openrc in Debian has been migrated to bullseye and has averted
  * (plasma) \o/
* Updated tasksel for ceres/chimaera There was a message on dng about
  sddm not being an option to satisfy task-kde-desktop. Was there a
  reason it was removed? Does the theming work? Or was it to do with
  elogind/policykit? Debian has sddm as an option for both lxqt and kde.
  * (gl) The default theme is only tested on Xfce. If someone reports
    weirdness elsewhere, I do my best to fix it.

### gryrmln
* I have forked arm-sdk.git and libdevuansdk.git on gitea.devuan.dev to
  build devuan images for a currently unsupported soc. I would like
  clarification as to what is acceptable to place on gitea (I have other
  projects which I have no intent of contributing to Debian to be
  packaged there).
  * (adam) - great! look forward an to arm-sdk reboot!
  * (plasma41) If a repository is Devuan-related, then add it to the
    gitea. If not, please host it elsewhere.

### Xenguy
* buster-to-beowulf migration documention:
  * **Question**:  A couple of DNG mailing list users are posting
    scripts that attempt to migrate from Buster to Beowulf.  Has anyone
    tested these at all?
  * Need some note or disclaimer added to the current buster-to-beowulf
    documentation, as fsmithred reports the documented method is not
    working properly any longer.
    * **Proposed wording (draft):**
      * "Please Note:  Recent user feedback suggests this documentation
        is not as seamless as it once was.  If you find an improvement,
        please let us know on our [Forum](https://dev1galaxy.org/) or
* bgstack15 inquired about getting sources.list coordinates for Ceres
  posted to https://www.devuan.org/os/packages
  * [x] Ceres and Chimaera source.list information has now been added to
    our [Packages](https://beta.devuan.org/os/packages.html) page.
    * (gl) Ceres still needs a src line

### golinux
* LeePen . . . policy regarding forking to remove libsystemd0 (LeePen)
First draft:
* KatolaZ not KaToLaZ

### rrq
* set up mailing list server?
  * (adam) - can help to take this up on www
  * (gl) Ben?
  * (plasma) Rick?
  * (gl) Roundcube webmail access [ non-negotiable :) ] (adam) webmail
    is an additional
* automated chimaera alpha installation iso publishing .. to files.d.o
