I had never heard of it as of today and yes, there is such a thing:

See here:


and here:


The how-can-i-help program hooks into APT to list opportunities for
contributions to Debian (like orphaned packages, or bugs tagged
'newcomer') for packages installed locally, after each APT
invocation. It can also be invoked directly, and then lists all
opportunities for contribution (not just the new ones).

Now, as to why *this* very Debian specific package doing in the
Devuan repositories is anyone's guess.

Useful? Doubt it but then, who knows.

I don't have it in my Beowulf installation.
