Calling it simply "Debian
GNU" will confuse the hell out of a lot of people. "Debian GNU/Hurd"
will give it a better and more distinguishable identity.
GNU and GNU/Hurd are two names for the same system; the latter name
emphasizes the fact that the kernel is the Hurd. It is useful to
emphasize that when making a contrast with GNU/Linux. In this
context, we want to make that emphasis.
PS I may have been dreaming, but I'm pretty sure I read messages on
this list some time ago that implied that "Debian GNU/Hurd" had
already been decided on as the official name.
Yes, that is its official name, and the reason is that this is a place
where it is useful to make the contrast with GNU/Linux.
