''"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 is 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]]''.

 <!> Please consider renaming those pages !DebianGnuHurd/* rather than Debian_Gnu/Hurd*
 1. The convention on this wiki is to use MoinMoin:CamelCase .
 1. The sub-pages would be attached to !DebianGnuHurd and not to !DebianGnu
 2. It would be consistent with DebianGnuLinux (I understand it wouldn't be consistent with kfreebsd which should also be renamed.)
(Michael, can you delete this note, whether you rename the page or not)
