Being this the situation (Mach hacking considered a waste of time),
Jose's idea of having separate mantainers for GNU Mach and GNU Mig
becomes IMHO something that should really be taken seriously into

Some people is still wasting energies with the only microkernel able
to boot the Hurd at the moment.


It was a type of people I did not know, I found them very strange and
they did not inspire confidence at all. Later I learned that I had been
introduced to electronic engineers.
