Could you please test my pet package ;)

Dear Hurd-porters,

I'd like to ask you for a favour: I am currently packaging the hot-babe tool; you know, that "graphical" system load monitor. I am not going to have it uploaded to Debian, though, because last time this was tried, it left quite a fuzz in the community [1].

However, I have never understood all the fuzz about it and consider the package funny, not offensive. Furthermore it is a small tool and perfectly suitable for learning about packaging.

However, I would like to keep the package quality high and get it as portable as possible. I have already found patches for NetBSD and OpenBSD. FreeBSD is already supported by upstream, but there is no explicit support for Hurd. Since I have no access to a porter box myself, would you do me a favour and check out the following git tree, compile the sources and tell me what's missing?


Thank you very much in advance,
 - Fabian
