Great! I'm currently preparing a tutorial on Mach, Lites and GNU/Hurd
for the german unix users group (GUUG) technical spring conference
in Cologne, http://www.guug.de/ffg99/ due March 17th.
I do have the option to put Mach/Hurd on the proceedings CD-ROM until
ca. 2 March.
Since I'm trying to motivate people to write new Mach- und Hurd-based
software, it would be good to provide them on the same occation with a
working development environment...

cross-gcc or cross-egcs packages [built for Debian/Linux]
native-gcc or native-egcs packages
Very important for developers: _sources_ for gnumach, the hurd and glibc!
Mach and Hurd Maintainers:
could you please add some infos about how you debug under the Hurd?
[Meaning: gdb features, starting alternate servers, using portinfo, ...]

Could an intermediate release be ready by March 1st for the GUUG CD-ROM?
