''"In a discussion with the Debian Hurd porters it was decided that the
Hurd port stays on FTPMaster until Wheezy is released. Should they
have managed to get the port into a state that it is released together
with all the others (probably as a technology preview), it is kept in
the archive. Should they not manage this the port will be removed from
the main archive and move fully to debian-ports.org."''<<FootNote([[http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2011/03/msg00015.html]] - Debian pushes development of the Hurd port)>>


= What is Debian GNU/Hurd ? =
''Debian GNU/Hurd'' is an operating system from Debian, but which uses [[http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/|GNU Hurd]], which a set of servers, running on top of the GNU Mach microkernel instead of the kernel named ''Linux'' (thus the name Debian GNU/Hurd). Some day, most applications will exist both in ''Debian GNU/Hurd'' and in ''[[DebianGnuLinux|Debian GNU/Linux]]''.

   * Debian "Sid" debian-installer images available [[http://people.debian.org/~sthibault/hurd-i386/installer/cdimage/]].
   * This is the prefered method of install.

   * ghc6
   * gnat
   * (./) ruby1.9.1

== Goals for later ==

 * IPv6 support in d-i (after it is settled for linux).
