I think ams tried, but I heard from another source (and you can see it
on the sv front page) that the sv people have security issues to work
out which is a higher priority than getting this fixed.

If you say the wiki, do you mean gnu fans? we already link to that.
I don't want to give special purpose emphasis on the wiki (like,
"there is this task list", because I am not checking the wiki on a
regular basis, so I don't know how useful it is.
Also, from past experience, I don't think that every single bit of
random information should be on hurd.gnu.org. That will just lead to
a bloody mess of out of date information, because nobody is
maintaining it. The current site has about just the level of detail
as can be maintained by us without too much trouble. I don't object
against linking external resources in a few places, but the external
resources must be stable and worthwhile enough to do this.
The gnufans wiki is such a reliable place and we link to it in the
other projects page.

Bloody hell, we still link to l4hurd! I had no idea.

haha, good luck :)
