Thanks for your interest in the GNU Hurd project!
If you are striving to contribute to the effort, please spend some time
thinking about the following items:
* What areas are you interested in contributing to?
Think a moment about this list: porting / extending existing software
to run on Hurd systems; work on existing or write new Hurd servers or
libraries; work on the standard C library; make Hurd stuff usuable
from other programming languages than C; work on the current Mach
micro kernel; do research and development of a next-generation micro
kernel; help with development of new Hurd libraries and servers on
top of that. Those projects are all within the ``Hurd'' topic, but
are vastly different projects.
* How is your expertise about system and kernel programming?
Sadly we don't have the ressources to teach you from ground-up. We
will -- of course! -- answer to specific questions, but on
substantial parts of your project you'll have to work on your own.
(Unless there is someone who already works in the same area, of

Are you used to the working-style Free Software projects bring with

He provide a number of pointer about stuff to read on the project's web
pages, see <http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/docs.html>. Also, there's a
wiki at <http://www.bddebian.com/~wiki/>.
