Already done several days ago.
But really, a search on this list's archives or the forum or the
logs for #devuan would have answered your question.

When I was exploring the idea of using Devuan, I did search with
engines, realizing the Devuan team probably wasn't going to rebuild
every package from Debian. I had no luck arriving at any answer as
plain or as clear as the one from this thread.
The main suggestion is that it would be friendlier to include the
blurb in an About page, or better yet, a Faq page. I see it as a
crucial question. Information buried it in a forum or mailing list (or
worst of all, an IRC log) isn't really making it accessible for those
curious about transition.
Yes, you are correct that KatolaZ provided an excellent answer. But as
I stated before . . . this is a support question/answer not a
pre-install one. So the forum or wiki would be the most appropriate
place for it. If/when a FAQ page is written, it could be included there
