I've been working on something for a couple of years now. It's not the
Hurd, it's not an L4 derivative, but it shares some of the goals and
the high level architecture. For now, it's only the kernel, and it
doesn't even provide IPC yet, but in the end, it's intended to become
a Hurd-like operating system. You can read more on this web page [1]
and if you want more details, let me know.
