[SOLVED] Nightly versions on Devuan

Nightly versions of Firefox can also be installed and updated on Devuan.

# First, the signature key is imported::
wget -q https://packages.mozilla.org/apt/repo-signing-key.gpg -O- | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/packages.mozilla.org.gpg > /dev/null

# Then the fingerprint can be checked. This should be 35BA A0B3 3E9E B396 F59C A838 C0BA 5CE6 DC63 15A3
gpg --quiet --no-default-keyring --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/packages.mozilla.org.gpg --fingerprint | awk '/pub/{getline; gsub(/^ +| +$/,""); print "\n"$0"\n"}'

# The repository is now entered in the source list:
echo "deb [signed-by=/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/packages.mozilla.org.gpg] https://packages.mozilla.org/apt mozilla main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mozilla.list > /dev/null

# Finally, the sources are updated and the Firefox Nightly DEB package is installed for example in German:
apt update && apt install firefox-nightly-l10n-en

That's just asking for frustration and pain . . .

but it is interesting that it also works on Devuan ;-)

Yes, I just realized it. Constant updates keep everything up to date, but it's a terrible use of resources on the net. It was an interesting experience for me, but I won't be using Nightly any more.
