Okay, thanks for the clear statement.

So we don't have to bother w/ Ubuntu anymore at all (besides migrating
away), we can concentrate on Devuan. (eg. getting rid of polkit etc).
The only blocker right now is Zimbra, which is currently not packaged
for Debian yet - but as we'll move to OpenZimbra anyways once it's
stable, we won't have any need for Ubuntu anymore.
