Just not impressed with Devuan. Still has KDE 5.8, so even older and more outdated than Debian. Plus LONG since EOL'd (at least they should move to 5.12.x for LTS). No thank you.

To my knowledge its using 5.12.5 in the 2,1 release but yes they are still behind Debian.

They should definitely consider updating their package list then...

becasuse according to that:
4 results for "plasma-desktop" in ascii (in 3.695705ms)
[ascii] kde-plasma-desktop-92
[ascii] plasma-desktop-5.8.6-1
[ascii] plasma-desktop-data-5.8.6-1
[ascii] plasma-desktop-dev-5.8.6-1
