Thank you for maintaining Gnewsense.  I have enjoyed using a maintained 
version of Wheezy and will I continue using it for many years.  

More importantly, thanks for the offer to coach the next maintainer.  I think 
the people at exe GNU/Linux would be very interested in your advice and I 
will try to contact them.  Who knows, they might find GNewsense a better base 
than Devuan.  

I'd like to help out with a few packages that I love, but don't think I have 
the time to be much more than a user for at least the next six months.  

Best wishes,

Will Hill
