Nobody who has ever worked seriously on GNU/Hurd on L4 has spent his time
writing web pages about it.

The first "documentation" if you can call it was Neals VM slides, and now
the hurd-on-l4.tex document in the hurd-l4 source tree module of the hurd
CVS repository.  Of course the mails on this maiing list are also relevant.

I am now starting at bootstrapping the implementation.  That means that
there is code, but it is not much yet and most of it is definitely not in
its final form.  I try to write as much as needed quickly to get
bootstrapped, so that everybody can work on the parts they want to work on,
while still having some sort of platform where things can be tried out.

By that time we have hopefully crossed a line where you can start to do
something useful while focussing on some individual smallish sub project of
the whole, rather than being lost in the non-existence of it.
