- I'm assuming that because usrmerge does not yet affect
stable/Daedalus, therefore the web site does not yet need to have any
information added regarding this topic.  Please disabuse me of this
notion if I am in error on this point  : -)
  - (gl) I assume you are caught up with the discussions on #devuan-

    LeePen has committed a patch? for the merge. The paste here -
https://dpaste.com/3QJTR8HJ8paste-dev - is expired but I kept a copy.
It is pasted at the very bottom of this page ****

     - (DelTomix) Link to patch on git:

- (gl) I would prefer that a mention be made somewhere on www (and
elsewhere) to prevent users from scrambling their systems when
upgrading to Excalibur because things are NOT as they used to be. How
to present that info needs to be thought out and worded carefully and
the best location decided on.

- (Xenguy) Okay, will catch up sometime soon on IRC. I have almost
zero knowledge of usrmerge at the moment.

- (DelTomix) Planning to run through several installer cycles this
weekend to test builder related work, during which I'll be keeping
notes of all issues and workarounds I encounter with merge/Excalibur.
Maybe I'll then have some helpful material to contribute and formulate
some guides.


- Someone in IRC asked about the Devuan onion site (for access via Tor)
and it happens I was looking at that recently, would like to do some
maintenance and get that back up and running properly on infra. Easy
work for me because I'm familliar already with running bridge relays.

- (Xenguy) Sounds good, parazyd was our only contact for Tor stuff in
the past.
