Out of date, and thus incorrect. I made the page over a year ago when I was 
trying to get into working on the Hurd. This was back when any interest in 
putting Hurd on L4 was just discussion among non-core Hurd developers. I was 
hoping that putting up a page and brainstorming on some direction might 
attract some attention to the effort.

I did some rudimentary work in trying to figure out how I would get a driver 
set working on L4, and was going to build around that, but life intervened. I 
was in the process of translating Christian Helmuth's deploma thesis when 
things tapered off.

As it is now, Marcus and company are using a subdirectory in the regular Hurd 
sources for the L4 effort. My work is a vestigial outshoot at this point.

I have some emails in my queue for updates to the page. When I get a chance, I 
will apply them. I will also refer people to the real places for the sources, 

I do hope to return to this at some point, but I would be happy to have the 
Savannah site used for the actual L4 efforts, and would have not problem 
upkeeping it if people actually wanted to use it.

Anything else?
