I just wrote the new Month of the Hurd. Please tell me if there’s anything 
which should be added, removed or changed.

A month of the Hurd: *dde linux26*, *thread storms*, *new live CD* and *IRC 
meeting schedule*. 

> This month Zheng Da 
> [reported](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2010-05/msg00037.html)
> on the state of porting DDE linux26 to the Hurd, 
> which can improve the GNU Hurd Hardware support a lot: 

>> I tested pcnet32, ne2k-pci, rtl8139, e1000. pcnet32 works in
>> both VMWare and qemu. Only qemu emulates ne2k-pci and rtl8139 cards and 
both DDE
>> drivers work well in qemu. — [[Zheng_Da|user/zhengda]]

> Also Sergio Lopez 
> [added some patches](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-
> to prevent thread storms when synchronizing large pagers in ext2fs. They 
should improve performance for high throughput situations. 

> Additionally Justus Winter created a [live CD]
> with an installation wizard in the spirit of the OpenBSD installer. 
> He needs testers to improve it. 

> And the [scheduled IRC meetings for Google Summer of code]
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2010-05/msg00148.html) are 
continuing on Mondays and Thursdays, 10:30 UTC. If you want to catch up on 
them, you can have a look at the [channel logs]

> <small>*PS: As the amount of new developments on the Hurd has increased 
quite a bit since the start of the ‘Month of the Hurd’, these news are only a 
selection of the items you can already test yourself. There’s more in our 
[[mailing_lists]]. The rough criterium for the Month of the Hurd is “can you 
already test it and can I say why it is great for the Hurd at large?” — 

Best wishes,
