I agree broadly with what Richard is saying here. Certainly, we cannot
build hurd-ng until there is some consensus what hurd-ng is about.
Marcus and Neal have been trying to build that. They are working on a
document provisionally entitled "A critique of the Hurd" as a starting

I suspect that the low-level components of Coyotos will converge
quickly, and that these will be directly useful to the Hurd, so people
who are looking for something to do may want to start there. We should
be able to start responding sensibly on Coyotos questions late next
