This was my understanding, as well, from reading Debian/Devuan pages; but 
perhaps I am not so well-informed. I was intending to migrate to Devuan more 
based on principle (because, in principle, they are more Debian than Debian). 
Also, the Devuan community seems to be very well-organized, by comparison to 
other distros; especially considering the fact that Devuan was only forked in 
(I think) 2014.
