Note that most of these breakages are a result of new package versions
being uploaded, but our buildds slacking, or problems preventing the
build of the newer versions alltogether. This results in conflicts
between the newer arch-independent packages and the older hurd packages.

This kind of problems could be effectively prevented by use of a
"testing" repository, where only known working combinations of packages
are allowed to migrate. This would require some work though to set up
and maintain -- working on Gentoo GNU/Hurd instead might very well be a
better investment of time :-)
