The lists differ only a bit. I believe we should rather work from what
debootstrap currently mandates minus the linux-specific ones. These are
the packages we'll need to get done in order for the Hurd to be
installed 'the debian way'.
I've found a mail from marcus from about a year ago with a debootstrap
patch attached. Seems like he mostly got the same packages as I do. I've
added gnumach to $required (d'oh) in the meantime, as well as syslogd to
So I guess the list of packages is quite alright for the moment, we need
to push the packages from alpha to the debian mirrors now. I don't know
what is holding them up at alpha though and how to help in this regard.
On another matter: Adam Heath said on irc the other day that he'll
upload a new dpkg package in 'the next days'. I urged him to fix the
Hurd-bug, but as it grave now anyway, he won't have much choice I guess,
so this problem hopefully goes away RSN.
