It's more directed to the cabals in Debian. I know a lot of package
maintainers are willing to help the Hurd port, but it's made
impossible by small group of people who don't want to cooperate. And
if you say something about it, it's always your fault and not theirs,
because they think that they are holy and don't make mistakes, you are
just a fool wasting their time. And that is just the way the Hurd port
is treated in Debian.
