IIRC, Marcus pulled that inofficial version to clarify the need for a
new version of apt that includes Hurd support.

(This was perhaps also an attempt to put more pressure on the apt
maintainers which apparently have not taken Hurd-issues very seriously
in the past. I'm not sure whether the last part really works, as it
mainly inconveniences Hurd-newbies, which probably don't know how to
help. Seasoned Debian/Hurd users will already have an appropriate apt
on their system.)

AFAIK apt from CVS works fine so an upcoming 0.4 should also.
