Devuan is born for a simple goal: having a systemd-free debian jessie to preserve freedom choice on init and decoupling between init and the rest of the system, preserving users and sysadmins to be forced to abandon the GNU, KISS and UNIX philosophy and losing control, remaining a 100% fully compatible migration path from debian.
Devuan was born for a simple goal: **having a systemd-free Debian Jessie to preserve freedom choice on init and decoupling between init and the rest of the system**, preserving users and sysadmins to be forced to abandon the GNU, KISS and UNIX philosophy and losing control, remaining a 100% fully compatible migration path from debian.
We are aware of how huge effort, time and blood is needed to maintain a so huge distro like debian is, so, initially,
it will NOT be a complete fork, but just a complete infrastructure to distribute a personalized version of debian jessie, testing and unstable where some packages from us will be pinned up on top of the debian repositories, where all packages with dependencies from anything related to systemd will be removed when possible, or systemd-shim will be preferred for the others.
We are aware of how huge an effort, time and blood is needed to maintain such a huge distro like Debian is. Initially, it will NOT be a complete fork, but just a complete infrastructure to distribute a personalized version of Debian _Jessie_, _testing_ and _unstable_ where some packages from us will be pinned up on top of the Debian repositories, where all packages with dependencies from anything related to systemd will be removed when possible, or systemd-shim will be preferred for the others.
IF, and only IF we will be able to provide also a systemd package with no hijacking of the whole system, we will also offer it.
We will not try to modify anything else from the actual debian, so, we will mantain the same repository schemas (main/contrib/non-free) and also the same codename (jessie) for the first release.

In a second phase, when we will able to clone the intere debian repository and we will be completely indipendent from debian, we will go on our way, and then any other change will be considered, assuming the basic principles and concepts of our [constitution](DevuanConstitution) is respected.
