Re: HURD kernel change

Hi Mark,
  The big change planned is a port of Hurd from gnumach to L4,
this seems to be a year or three away (but IS happening).

  There's a moderate change right now from gnumach1.3 to
gnumach2.0 (was called oskit-mach).  AFAIK, there are a
few necessary bits of work left on gnumach2.0, the CDs
contain gnumach1.3.  I don't know the timescale for the
gnumach2.0 transition but the current CDs (snapshot K4)
are supposedly very good (previous trivial problems ironned out)
(I'm using K3 with no unexpected problems)
