devuan RFP or ITP are same as in Debian or how can we made it?

how can i report a request for upgrade, for package or intent for package in devuan? due there's new packages available and updates to reports.. like recent hardinfo changes not well tracket in Debian.. among others

due there's no documentation (and by me) at least with spell error can be.. something we need at least a point of reference that's its better thant nothing

Stretch and ascii have the same version of hardinfo: 0.5.1-1.5+b3 0 
Ceres has 0.5.1+git20170620-1.   I did not check sid.
What version are you looking for? If you want something that's newer than what ceres/sid has, you probably need to wait until debian brings it into sid, and then it can be backported to ascii.  We use the same version of hardinfo that's in debian. The package did not need to be devuanized.

I don't think that process has been formalized yet, but take a look at https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=549

The reason hardinfo is in devuan is because it is in debian, and the entire debian repo is available, except for a few systemd packages. You can tell which ones we have changed by looking at the version. The devuanized packages say 'devuan' in the version. devuan1 for jessie, devuan2 for ascii.

thanks, its a start point.. but seems its not so easy to understant for newbies.. the question that i formulated its for people that are non-familiar with development process..

the question that i formulate its more related for users dessire or wanted packages that are not comming from debian and are related only to devuan but are not in devuan yet.. how users can report a "request" for "something", i not refers to "user want to package"
