I apologize for my mistake.

I still don't know what Bill means by "Devuan Jessie-Beowulf merged version".

If you just complain it wastes developer time and is very inefficient.

Please search and file bug reports and thus provide focus and reduce
duplication and facilitate tracking, discussion, fixing, and fix

Devuan is roughly 99.9% Debian and has roughly two orders of magnitude
more developers.  Again, to avoid inefficient duplication, reports of
bugs in the Debian portion should be filed in the Debian bug database.

Relatively few people will be using Jessie henceforth due to immediately
reduced security support and slowly increasing obsolescence.
