GSoC GNU Hurd Project

I am a student doing my undergraduate engineering course in
Information Technology at MES College of Engineering, Kuttipuram in

I have just come across the GNU Hurd project being listed as a mentor
organisation in Google SoC 2008.

I have a proposal to work on the "installer part" of the GNU Hurd. A
few of my seniors did work on this project (GNU Hurd LX Installer)
last year co-ordinating with Philip Charles of New Zealand. Our work
has been listed at http://gnu.ethz.ch/hurd

The LX installer project was also listed by Sourceforge at

Since GNU Hurd doesn't have a native installer, the LX project made
use of a stable surrogate installer for the purpose of installation
and went ahead right upto the features of getting X console after
installation – which was unique.

This time around, our plan is to extend these features further :
       (a) incorporate latest stable surrogate installer
       (b) get a gui installer part working
       (c) work with the latest release of Hurd – equivalent to K16 or later

Since the guides of this project is here (C K Raju, Raghesh A and
Badharudeen P), it would be possible to carry the work forward.

The proposed team members (all classmates) are

       (1) Subin M
       (2) Manoj K M
       (3) Binu J Raj

We are awaiting to hear from you,

Yours truly,
