Devuan GNU/Linux installation, upgrades and minimalism

This is the home of my user contributed docs for upgrading, installing, configuring Devuan with minimalism and alternative solutions to upstream forced dependencies. Since it’s conception it has received a number of contributions from other users, most notably translations. The goal of this unofficial project is to help users get setup with Devuan and to be a general resource for minimalism.
