This same question has been risen before.  I bet you'd find some
answers in previous descussions.  There was an attempt announced:


But it also specifies no help request, neither any support required.
You might want to ask Jaldhar about his progress on this.

Why Minix?Do you like kernel development?Minix just have an application
in teaching....
Of course,it's good idea....

Since minix3, that's no longer true:



"What Is MINIX 3?
MINIX 3 is a new open-source operating system designed to be highly
reliable, flexible, and secure. It is loosely based somewhat on
previous versions of MINIX, but is fundamentally different in many key
ways. MINIX 1 and 2 were intended as teaching tools; MINIX 3 adds the
new goal of being usable as a serious system on resource-limited and
embedded computers and for applications requiring high reliability"

As you can see, it's no longer just an OS teaching tools.  To me it
sounds like the option while hurd-ng is still not converging to a
uKernel decision.
