Sure, no problem!  Even though that it took some time to finish and
polish my automatic installation script (which I had begun already months
ago, but never followed up) -- but that is now finished, and I can newly
install and configure up-to-date GNU/Hurd systems (including a standard
set of packages) with only very few keystrokes.

Oh, there is also a public_hurd_boxen/bddebian page.  On that one you
should later register additional IP addresses that you use, but no need
to hurry with that.

It was roughly like this: I had left a minute before you popped up -- and
got back a one minute after you had left again.  ;-)

One thing returned to mind --
<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2008-10/msg00003.html> --
there'll be some work needed as soon as it gets to setting the
Xen-emulated net devices to promicios mode, or whatever else Zheng's work
might need, as Xen Mach's device_set_status currently looks like this:
``return D_INVALID_OPERATION;''.  But perhaps you don't need that for
starters.  And also, with Samuel's and Zheng's help that should easily be
possible to implement.
