I think that most newcomers are discouraged by the installation
procedure. It's still quite difficult to get a basic Hurd system up and
running (network set up).
The architecture of the Wiki on hurd.gnufans.org is probably not well
adaptated to newbies. Maybe the Wiki should be split between
"Anderstanding and using the Hurd" (installation and setup, translator
examples, etc ...) and "Developpers" (information about developping the Hurd).
I could start those changes if a consensus arises in favor of them.
