My bet would be more on: the Devuan website has be pwned. Hacked, defaced, taken over.
Unlikely the Devuan makers would render their own website useless just to crack an April Fool's Day joke.

Just great, I clicked on the link. I thought it had something to do with the current "green movement." :?
I hope there's nothing malicious being downloaded in the background. I think the link should be removed.

Highly doubt it. I'm not seeing any increase in inbound traffic.

I'll edit my original post to avoid confusion. :idea:

Discussion on their mailinglist seems to show they have lost control of their infra. Their website and git repo at least. That or it's a joke taken too far.

Edit: websites are reachable through Gopher as per above screenshot. You can browse through the a Gopher proxy; for example the main website on Floodgate Gopher proxy: http://gopher.floodgap.com/gopher/gw?a= ... uan.org%2F

So I was wrong and they really did do so?
Maybe this is the only way for Devuan to get some public attention, even if it should be only for a fool's day. :wink:

When I read they lost control of their server and can't regain, I think: "what an idiots?" When I read it was a joke I think: "I was right".
Windows assumes I'm stupid but Linux demands proof of it
