In xfe is not a forked package in Devuan and we use Debian's packages directly
without recompilation. So, in principle, bugs about xfe should be reported to
Debian's BTS to be addressed.

However, you need more detail here before you submit this to Debian. What are
you trying to do or expecting to happen?

That maybe. Have you tried to configure the inode/directory mimetype to open in
xfe? You can probably do that in ~/.mailcap.
