Subject: [devuan-dev] And a big thank you to ASCII
Devuan Friends,

The time has come to archive Devuan's second release, ASCII, and it will
shortly[1] be removed from our mirrors. The Debian suite on which ASCII is
based, stretch, has retired[2] and moved to archive.debian.org[3].

If you are still using ASCII, now is a great time to upgrade to more recent
Devuan releases[4].

If there is a reason you can't upgrade and you absolutely have to continue to
use ASCII without support, bugfixes or security updates, you will need to change
your existing sources.list to:-

deb http://archive.devuan.org/merged ascii main non-free contrib

Note that ascii-security and ascii-proposed-updates suites are also available on
archive.devuan.org, but no new updates or fixes will be added.

Best wishes

Mark Hindley
