Yes, it is.

Use the "debian" directory. But I was told the link in there is broken,
so that you won't be able to use it as a source for APT.

The difference is that most of the alpha packages are not on Debian
mirrors, and if a package with the same version is in both archives,
then probably the one on the Debian mirrors is broken, as was the case
with Emacs 21 a while back (maybe it still is).
PS: The official name is "Debian GNU/Hurd". As so many people speak
about "Debian/Hurd", I wonder where they did read that term, because a
web page using this term should be corrected.
