This is a great service.  Thank you.

Keep in mind that the operating system is named `GNU', not `Hurd'
(which is just the kernel), and that the full name of the other Debian
distribution is `Debian GNU/Linux'... Debian developers never call it
`Debian Linux'.

Even closer to the official perspective would be:

``Debian GNU/Hurd is a project to create release 1.0 of the complete
GNU system, using the GNU Hurd kernel architecture.''
