Money -> Mouth
Tried devuan ascii on my latest machine and am very pleased with it indeed. I made a donation immediately. You have to do that straight away, before other more 'important' things get in the way.
Also, for a few years I've been the main (but not very experienced) dev for the Yoshimi soft-synth, and once I got my feet under the table I did two things I thought important insurances. The first was to mirror it on github (as sourceforge was getting flaky) and the second was to give two other trusted devs full access to the repositories.
If the proverbial bus comes to get me, the project should be safe.
