And if you want to jump in, maybe an analysis I did a while back can help you: 


It lacks the basic result, though: What can people do to help. So here's a 
simple update: 

* The basic part is porting debian packages: 
-> http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/running/debian/porting.html

* If you like setting up systems, you can try to build a Hurd on different 
types of hardware. And then ideally write a guide so others can do the same. 
-> http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/hurd-install

* Then there's "get X to run efficiently"

... but what do I repeat the here? It's all on the front page, our idea page 
for the Summer of Code and the list of open issues :) 
-> http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/#index2h2
-> http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/community/gsoc/project_ideas.html
-> http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/open_issues.html

Best wishes,
