you seem to be highly motivated to work on this, which is great. As you
already found out, there isn't really a standard and convenient way to
install Debian GNU/Hurd.
But there is not much that is Hurd specific in installing the Hurd. So it
makes a lot of sense to just port the Debian installation procedure, from
debootstrap to debian-installer, to the Hurd. Help with this is
appreciated. Some people like James Morrison and Glenn McGrath already
started with that some time ago, and surely there is a lot still to do.
