I would, but I don't see a place on the FAQ that allows for conversation. There are no active links visible in my browser (although the page suggests that there are).

Re: How you can help Devuan

@demonic . . . all links in the first post of this thread and elsewhere on this forum are "live".  If there is something that you think requires extensive "conversation", You can start a new thread in the appropriate section (probably not Announcements).  If you just want to comment, drop it here.  If it turns into a "thing" I can split off to a separate thread.  Keep in mind that this is a forum not a wiki.  Users may post documentation but it is ephemeral and will likely become outdated in time.

Re: How you can help Devuan

Hello!
I would like to run Devuan mirror in Russia. How much traffic/disk space should I expect?
I have a server there, I maybe need to upgrade it.

@Mercurius . . . You didn't say which mirror you would like to host so posting both:
iso mirror setup
package mirror setup

https://www.devuan.org/os/partners/ways-to-help has a link (You can seed our Release Torrents) that is 404

https://www.devuan.org/os/contact doesn't have the usual "Webmaster" link, so if anyone from the project reads this, maybe they can fix it

Re: How you can help Devuan

@user . . . thanks for the suggestions.  beta.devuan.org is the updated site that will be released with Beowulf 3.0.0.  So that is the site you should be proofing for errors and/or using if you are testing Beowulf.

That page no longer exists on the beta site.  It has been replaced with a link to this page on the dev1galaxy forum.

That's an interesting suggestion but perhaps not necessary as the web source is in devuan's git and anyone can open an issue there.   Devuan's irc channels #devuan-www and #devuan-dev are also good places to catch someone.

Re: How you can help Devuan

Somehow I still miss, if donations for devuan are non-profit donations, which are accountable as costs inside a company.
But since donations go to a non-proft organisation (dyne.org), it should be possible to get the according receipt?

Re: How you can help Devuan

can I just ask a question regarding how I can help?
I have to admit, I'm not a rich man by any means (comparable to my own culture - the UK)
and I'm not exactly what you'd call a programmer.
So I dont feel able to donate money or contribute to any code,
but I do love certain things and am good at them,
for example I like making digital art and backgrounds and logo's and that kind of thing.
Also I am good at helping people figure out problems with computers and networks
I'm just wondering if any of that is considered a conribution?
For example, I know other distro's hold (kind of) competitions before each new release for people
to submit ideas for art works that will be included in the new edition of the distro

Re: How you can help Devuan

I think that you answered your own question.

We are not competitors.  We are collaborators.  smile

Devuan's artwork is quite specific and minimal.  All the default templates are HERE.

User contributed artwork can be offered in our gitea and promoted on the forum or elsewhere.
