Getting apps working with hurd is the main motivation for my installing
it, but I don't have a Net connection on my machine, so automatic
grabbing of sources or any packages using apt-get isn't a possibility.
Is there any chance that you could add to your script the ability to put
links to the source in the section pages.  This would enable me to do a
'wget -r http://walfield.org/hurd/need_compile/needs_compile_text.html',
for example and grab all of the tarballs for the packages in that
section, which can then be taken home and looked at.
