You seem to misunderstand a few things.

First of all read [1] & [2] to teach yourself the difference between
copyleft and free software.

Secondly the Hurd already exists, and works. I suggest you download ams'
latest snapshot of GNU[3] and have a play.

As I suggested in a previous email, working on GNU Mach might be good
for you and maybe even good for Mach.

No, the Hurd doesn't belong to RMS. Just as GNU doesn't belong to RMS.
Like all free software if it belongs to anyone it belongs to it's users.
But then software is just mathematics, it's not property, so how can it
belong to anyone?
