The one disagreement I have is that some of us don't feel qualified to 
write Hurd code, but might feel qualified to write an installer. =)  I 
prefer to help with web stuff and documentation, and porting.  My 
official Debianness should appear RSN.

I don't think it's been emphasized recently how many tasks us "average 
programmers" can be doing to get this going.  It might be nice to refocus 
on that so that the magicians can stick to the magic only they can do.

No matter how big the bell, if you only tap it, it can give out only a
faint sound.  We must understand thoroughly that the weakness of the blow,
not a fault of the bell makes the sound poor.
