Use "apt-show-version" to figure out which packages are a leftover from debian and need to be replaced with devuan versions. If you run into problems with consolekit, just drop a line.

Vielen Dank, aber...
After purging systemd and rebooting, I was unable to get to a command
line - it asked me to choose a runlevel, etc...
So instead, I installed Exegnu, which is based on Devuan and Trinity.
Using a wired connection I got it more or less updated to stretch and
am still working on wireless connectivity.  Basically it works, so I
continue to peck away at little things...
