I'm a bit reluctant to add such tasks, given that--afaIct--there so far
isn't an agreement between the Hurd maintainers about how to support file
systems that are larger than the contiguous addressable memory space
(which is around 2 GiB).  Comments from the maintainers?

Also, the currently proposed changes to address that problem (by Ognyan
Kulev) for the ext2fs translator only work for file systems with a block
size of 4096 Bytes.

I also don't know that.

Yes, but if I were a potential applicant, it'd be quite helpful for me to
see some tasks in the spirit the project wants people to work on.
