Ansible role to migrate Debian to Devuan

dear Devuanistas,

Recently I adopted ansible to build a script for non-interactive migration from Debian to Devuan. I works well on freshly installed servers and takes care of some little details needed and tedious to repeatedly type by hand.

I shared it on this public gist: Ansible for the non-interactive migration of Debian 11 "Bullseye" to Devuan 4 "Chimaera"

If there is enough demand for such a solution, I may put some extra effort in maintaining a repository with some ansible roles and a quick makefile automation for the different versions of Debian->Devuan migrations.

I hope the sysadmins can enjoy more slack thanks to this :^) in case you do let me know here, I'm happy to read your experiences.

Re: Ansible role to migrate Debian to Devuan

Sounds Awesome

Thanks for your efforts

Does VPS/cohost box's need specialised drivers to work with Devuan
or would this work with most VPS providers ?

Might be a good idea to host based scripts not on ((( GITHUB )))
but something more self hosted/based/free speech supported
