It is a shame, but I doubt the maintainer is ignoring GNU/Hurd on purpose.
#669308 simply had higher severity in the BTS, and held up testing
migration for everyone, because GNU/kFreeBSD is fortunate enough to be
classed as a 'release architecture' already.
The patch for #669059 then would have conflicted with mine and I'm sorry
for that. And the maintainer maybe didn't have time to merge/include it
yet for this upload.
The situation is awkward for GNU/Hurd because fixing things like webkit
(with lots of dependencies waiting on it) is important towards becoming
a release architecture too.
