VUAs Lead Devuan Development
In November 2014, a large group of anonymous senior IT professionals known as the Veteran UNIX Admins (hence the VUA in Devuan) began developing Devuan.
A core group of three lead developers guided the project until October 2017.
Franco “Nextime” Lanza (VUA) :: GPG key
Denis “Jaromil” Roio (VUA) :: GPG key
Daniel “Centurion” Reurich :: GPG key
