The current Hurd CDs are basically an interim measure and I have never
intended that they should be used for an official release. I am quite
happy to continue with them and nudge them closer to the Debian-installer.
However, I would be happy to be part of a Debian-Hurd-installer team when
the time comes. There would be a lot more work involved in developing a
proper Hurd installer and I could not do it by myself.
<asbestos> While I happily go along with the majority, I personally think
it would be wise for the Hurd to have an independent release cycle,
starting at Debian GNU/Hurd 1.0, for example.
1. This would mean that different arch's would be added when ready without
2. New features based on the Hurd's flexibility can be incorporated when
I suspect that once the Hurd has been officially released we would want
the following releases to follow quickly, say every 3 - 4 months for a
year or two. </asbestos>
