Thanks. I have updated the mirror list to show that.

That part is showing the complete tree of DNS resloving.
devuan.c3sl.ufpr.br is a CNAME for sagres.c3sl.ufpr.br, so that's
showing in that list.

be used for securiny updates of Debian packages. I may be wrong, or they
may have changed that.

You are correct, it's because you don't have ISOs. So the first step is
to get the ISOs.

rsync --delete -avX files.devuan.org::devuan /srv/mirrors/files.devuan.org/devuan-cd

Or something similar would work.

Then let the WWW admins know that you have them. The IRC channel
#devuan-dev on the usual IRC server is best.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
