Keeping sysvinit in LMDE3 :)

Yes, I'm moving over to Devuan because debian and lmde have gone all systemd, and versions 3 and 4 of LMDE will remove sysvinit during upgrade if allowed.
Having accidentally once upgraded from LMDE2 to LMDE3, managing to keep the choice of two inits, set about this weekend nailing it down. It seems the trick is:

 apt-mark hold sysvinit-core 

This keeps it installed. Next experiment is to see if this works in upgrading to LMDE4 too.
In the meantime, trying to figure out how to report the one bug that is stopping me using Devuan. Which is the best free webmail?

If you mean a server that manage mail with a web interface, a lot of people, like myself, agree on roundcube.

HI, slightly, I just need the address, not the whole server getup, like there used to be in the 90s, I just want an email address that I can dump if it gets spammed, for public forum use

Protonmail. I've been using it quite a while and I don't think I've gotten any spam on it. It's based in Switzerland for privacy reasons.

Re: Keeping sysvinit in LMDE3 :)

Thankyou, I got the email address but have been so far unable to successfully report the bug, rejected via email, and via reportbug, it runs through to the end and I confirm to send but I have seen and heard nothing.
Likewise, emailing owner@devuan.org gets no reply sad

Wasn't successful keeping sysv into LMDE4, will try again.

Re: Keeping sysvinit in LMDE3 :)

Can you not just reinstall sysvinit-core after upgrading? How about runit-init?

Good news that there is interest in doing this.  Almost exactly 3 years ago, I had brief contact with the LM developer and we discussed the possibility of basing LMDE on Devuan.  Then I never heard from him again.  Now it seems this idea might finally be taking off. Would be great if it happened!
