Ouch, that hurt! Since I'm also subscribed to both lists and since
I'm also paying by the minute (and here in EU, telcos are much
more expensive than in the US), I was also triply penalized while
uploading and downloading, and all this only for trying to help. So
Cowboy, please accept my public apologies in response to your public
reprimand :-).

But seriously, I exceptionally posted this big attachment to help-hurd
_and_ debian-hurd, because the topic _is_ relevant to both groups. From
Debian, I'd expected Marcus or someone else to turn those man pages into
yet another Debian package and help-hurd may be more interested in
gnumach/hurd hacking anyway. Sure, a publicly available FTP upload area
somewhere at *.gnu.org would have been preferable (if it only were
available and publicly announced... sigh!).

BTW, wouldn't it be reasonable to reunify most/all Hurd mailing lists
somewhere at gnu.org where they truly belong? The traffic volume on
those lists is currently not that high and would probably justify
this approach (?).
