The first one no, the second one yes.

I'm working on building Hurd atm, and it's been taking longer than I
would've liked.  We needed an update to mig, which cascaded into updates
to gnumach and hurd, but they also shouldn't be too recent as we'd need
a newer libc.  I thought the git tags in the repos would be a safe bet,
but they don't build by themselves, and lots of patches need to be
backported as well :) maybe after this upgrade is over we could offer
some help with releases/CI.
