Some of you might remember that early on we had the Friends of Devuan
dokuwiki that was contributed by a Devuan user. We learned a lot from
that experience which eventually just faded away due to lack of

Devuan searched long and hard to find an acceptable replacement wiki
candidate with the desired functions etc. - perhaps someone can pull
that wish-list out of memory - but I doubt anyone wants to start from
square one again.

OTOH . . . if someone would like to set up a test installation
somewhere, we'd be happy to take a look at other options.

Regardless, we also learned from previous experience that all
submissions will need to be vetted so admins, editor(s) as well as
contributors will be needed. Lots of them!

It will be up to the Devuan community to take on this task . . . or not
. . . the Devuan devs already have more than enough to deal with.

Devuan users . . . the ball is in your court . . .
