pkgmaster.devuan.org or deb.devuan.org?

Until now I followed the wiki page at https://git.devuan.org/dev1fanboy/Upgra … o-ascii.md which says

Add the Devuan mirrors with the ASCII branch name. Comment out any other lines.

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged ascii-backports main

Now, the "official" instructions at https://devuan.org/os/documentation/dev … e-to-ascii  say:

Add the Devuan mirrors with the Ascii branch name. Comment out any other lines.

deb http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged ascii main
deb http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged ascii-updates main
deb http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged ascii-security main
deb http://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged ascii-backports main

So, I am wondering. What is the difference between the two and which should one use?

Re: pkgmaster.devuan.org or deb.devuan.org?

The recommended sources are defined here:
https://devuan.org/os/etc/apt/sources.list

deb.devuan.org is a pool of mirrors that are all synced to pkgmaster.

The maintainer of that wiki will hopefully be changing that presently .
