I don't see why you need to jump the gun. A minor bugreport saying 'hi,
I just uploaded your package compiled for hurd. Looks like it would be
appropriate to change the singular reference to linux in your
description to something noting this' would be fine, too.

Again, I was reading your initial remark as 'STOP: you say linux here,
but did you actually noticed there are other ports around? I don't know
if it would work under the hurd, but you should at least call it

That's what I guessed. It's one thing trying to evangelize us DD's but
try telling to somebody in the real world that there is something free
besides Linux (or even RedHat...)

I actually tried to find out how my packages did for hurd some time ago.
It was quite a PITA to find the website and wasn't really informative.
If I did not have a notebook with PCMCIA ethernet and a serial modem,
(and only a small hardisk until some months ago), I would have tried to
install the hurd year(s) ago. I was quite intrigued by the couple of
Hurd CD's robster got on Sunday and will try to download and burn them
as soon as I got my broadband back in two weeks or so (/me sobs about
his misfortune)
