Mmm, note that there is a page about this already on
It'd be good to avoid rewriting such documentation from scratch again
and again as has been done in the past.

I've seen that too. I don't know why it's happening that way. It
shouldn't actually be a problem.

Yep, it seems the gunzip-based ext2fs doesn't properly stop. It's known
and in the TODO list since this summer.

I've made a mistake in the hurd script, I need to regenerate the image
with a fixed version.

The random-egd dependency is pending upload.

This is fixed in the hurd pending upload.

The mini iso has the latest hurd package, but only for the installer
itself, not for the installed system.

Something dark with ipv6.

Nope, he has troubles *during* the installer.

So in a word, please wait for the next hurd/gnumach upload.  I believe
I've fixed the ext2fs port deallocation issue, so will upload soon,
unless somebody finds issues with the gnumach package list I have talked
about some time ago.
