Ok, I see. Well, I would like to stay with 14.0.5 till 14.1 is official. I tried to figure out a way how I can integrate the TDE sources in the devuan build infrastructue. This is how far I have come with the official available parts (example just for the tqt3):

"apt-get source libtqt3-headers" downloads "tqt-x11-free-14.0.5~pre5", which will result in packages named e.g. "libtqt3-mt_14.0.5~pre5-0debian9.0.0+1_amd64.deb". The package name that is in the repository is "libtqt3-mt_4%3a14.0.5~pre5-0debian9.0.0+1_amd64.deb" - so not that far off what the source package creates.
The "same" sources obtained via git "git clone --recursive; cd tqt3; git checkout r14.0.x" and then copied over the "debian"-folder from tde-packaging creates packages named "libtqt3-mt_3.3.8-d-0ubuntu0_amd64.deb" - which I did not expect to happen. 
That leads to the conclusion, that both ways will end in a usable way of integrating the sources into devuan infrastructure.

Let's dig deeper :-)

"tqt-x11-free-14.0.5~pre5/debian/changelog" implies, that there should be a perfectly fine git repository for integration in devuan:

tqt-x11-free (4:14.0.5~pre5-0debian9.0.0+1) stretch; urgency=low

This git repository (wherever it may be) is most likely the perfect starting poinz for what I need. The procedure lined out by KatolaZ here ( ) does not sound that much demanding, when there is an upstream git repository that receives all the patches. The only work to be done right now is "copy the sources" (which is quite straightforward) and "get the naming right to devuan instead of debian" (dhich is handled by the d1h helper program). 

So ... this is exactly what I'd like to do: get TDE into devuan ASCII. Now I'm asking Slavek the repository to make that happen :-)
