Well, Hurd is welcome to Devuan if sufficiently many developers commit
their time to it. As you might know, Devuan is a systemd-free
distribution, currently based on Debian. But with time, when more and
more Debian packages will be dependant on systemd, in a not so distant
future, they will be considerably different. And kFreeBSD, also being
systemd-free, might consider making the move too. I think getting rid of
Hurd and kFreeBSD would make life easier for Debian to extinguish
themselves, leaving only Lendows(tm) left as distribution by a very few

However, in the long term Guix/Hurd will probably be the future.
