This list is a low-traffic list. I would recommend bug-hurd and
debian-hurd for Debian specific issues.

Nice to know that the installation went well. Regarding the network
interface, see below. There are some Linux 2.0 NICs supported, but I
don't remember which ones. In kvm/qemu I use rtl8139 which works fine.

I think the Arch Hurd people are only people using DDE until now, you
can try at #archhurd. For Debian or GNU not much is happening.
