The Hurd hackers community indeed is very friendly and welcomed me,
despite all the time I take away from them. So thank you, Marcus and
Neal.  I think I begin to know a little amount of things, so you could
ask me for some questions, and I hope that it will prevent them to be
disturbed in their work.

Neal told me to think about the device driver framework before he
left, but I don't know much about device drivers, and I'm not
particuliary interrested in it (even if I can work on it if you need
me to), so there is no problem for me if you want to work on it.  Note
that Daniel and Peter are responsible for the device driver framework,
though, so maybe you should work with them.

Now I return to work : Marcus is still waiting for my patches :)


P.S: please note the 2 t in Matthieu
