Distributions for Devuan are in the repository as a simple symlink. 
Therefore, a warning for an unexpected distribution name is displayed 
because all files are identical to the equivalent Debian distribution.

In Preliminary Stable Builds repository, thanks to management by reprepro, 
I could maintain separate 'dists' files for Debian and Devuan over the 
same binary packages, however, in the official QuickBuild repository, 
something like that would be challenging.

Therefore, I hope this warning about the name of the distribution is not 
such a big problem.
