My name is Pietro Braione, and I am a researcher at the University of
Milano-Bicocca. I was first introduced to the existence of the Hurd many years
ago by Richard Stallman, when he came in Milan for a Q&A session on free
software. Now I think it is the time to offer my contribution to the project.
Since I have some expertise on software quality, I would like to contribute
raising the overall quality of the Hurd software, especially of the GNUmach
microkernel. Unfortunately I have no experience in system and kernel
programming, and I can dedicate a very limited amount of time. This said, I
think that my small contribution can essentially be doing some janitorial work
- updating the documentation and the website, and cleaning the GNUmach code. As
a starter I created a work environment (Debian GNU/Hurd 0.5 under Virtualbox),
downloaded the source from git (master branch), compiled, and analyzed the
warnings. As a result I have a small patch for the (two) print formatting
warnings returned by the compilation. How do I submit it?
Secondly: I found some inconsistencies between the website and the
documentation. How do I report/fix them?
