Thanks for the link, sorry I missed it.

I just wanted to report that I have a series of "clean" patches
against the upstream busybox git repository which make it build on the
Hurd with the attached minimal config (which is debian/config/udeb,
minus ip, route, free, klogd, mount, swaponoff and pivot_root I

In my excitement I have already submitted them upstream [1] for
review, though on second thought I understand that posting them here
first would have been more appropriate, especially since you had
already started working on this.

Anyway, my plan right now would be:
  * port more applets
  * modify the Debian package to allow arch-specific .config files/overrides,
  * submit the whole lot as a wishlist bug against busybox and discuss
it on debian-boot

Does this sound like a reasonable course of action?
