* Fix at least the required, important and standard packages from http://people.debian.org/~sthibault/out_of_date.txt
* Try to fix the top of http://people.debian.org/~sthibault/graph-total-top.txt
* Good archive coverage.
* We're at 80%, kfreebsd was at 85% when it entered wheezy. We can probably do better with
* Be able to install at least the base from official mirror
* missing isc-dhcp, whose fixed version is still only in experimental, waiting for an upload to unstable
* Get Xorg + gnome/kde/xfce/lxde (lxde is working, xfce should work, kde is missing working dbus (due to local socket auth and bugs in select() cornercases)) + some webbrowser working (iceweasel 9 works, though not https, DebianBug:739658).
* No more binaries built in "use debian-ports" era ([[http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2013/07/msg00014.html]]):
* lost cause, will be dropped once emacs24 is fixed for good (DebianBug:725099) and made default
* xserver-xorg-video-openchrome, to just remove
* Basic ACPI support (but what?)
* (./) proper dhcp support in installed system
* (./) use ifup/ifdown instead of translators entry?
* (./) Switch by default to plain sysv startup
* (./) fix "su" to root discrepancy (PATH does not include sbin etc.), apparently simply because shadow's su vs coreutils' su.
* see [[http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.utilities.util-linux-ng/6488]]
* newer coreutils drops su ([[http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2013/07/msg00057.html]]), switch to util-linux' su once util-linux is updated
* or rather switch to shadow's, like linux, DebianBug:737805
This page attempts to be a reference for all resources related to Debian GNU/Hurd that can be useful for users and developers. Feel free to add more stuff as you see fit.
"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."1
What is Debian GNU/Hurd ?
Debian GNU/Hurd is an operating system from Debian, but which uses 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 Debian GNU/Linux.
- Installation and testing:
Debian "Sid" debian-installer images available http://people.debian.org/~sthibault/hurd-i386/installer/cdimage/.
- This is the prefered method of install.

Goals for releasing in jessie
This is on a separate page:
Goals for later
- IPv6 support in d-i (after it is settled for linux).
upgrade libfuse compatibility to >= 2.6.5, with fuse_lowlevel.h, http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/libfuse.html
- add cpuid-based autoloading of libc0.3-i686
- add autoloading of libc0.3-xen
packages in debian-ports (those marked with <!> need to be integrated in the main archive):
- (hurd-any) cardmgr-gnumach
- wifi, can live without
- default to emacs24
- Add hardware watch support.
- -k option issue fixed by exec_file_name patch in libc.
- Being Discussed directly with upstream, upstream patch available
- Maintainer wants patch really applied upstream before adding it to debian.
- patch applied upstream for newer version.
- Ship ntpdate at least.
- (hurd-any) random-egd
- make it an alternative to Marcus' C implementation
- can live without
- can postpone
- (hurd-any) util-hurd
- (hurd-any) wireless-tools-gnumach
- just for wifi, can live without
- DD-accessible machines running GNU/Hurd:
hurd-i386: see ArchiveQualification/hurd-i386
Patches that are only needed for Debian (either because they're fixed-upstream, or because of their Debian-specific nature)
