I agree, I myself don't have much time to spend on Hurd development. And
I have to learn as I go along, and that slows me down as well. But I do
have ideas that I'm not willing/can't work on right away (that's the hacking
part) but that would profit from some discussions (that's the talking part).
So that kind of list would be a good idea. For example it would redirect
threads like the "filesystem-mimetypes extensions" that we had on debian-hurd
a while back.
