Please do.  Please understand that hurd-l4 is not yet functional for
users.  But it is a good thing to keep documenting everything from the

You don't need to be a savannah developer in order to help us.  Just
send patches. :)

Just check out the sourcecode of the hurd-l4 module in the CVS
repository of the Hurd.  Build it, play with it, read the
documentation that is already there, etc.

And if you don't understand something, please ask.
