Very interested, thanks.

If nobody else steps forward, I'm a maintainer, and would be happy to
help this get onto a mirror.  As you suggest, though, I'll wait for
further discussion.

My own opinion is that this is a step closer to native Hurd boot
floppies.  Once we can get the changes to the programs accepted for
installing the Hurd, then we can work on getting the programs changed
to run on the Hurd.

In any event, these floppies make it cleaner for installing the Hurd
on a spare machine.
