I’m pleased to announce that Manolis Ragkousis will (at last!) be
working on the Guix port to GNU/Hurd as part of Google’s Summer of
Code as described at
Manolis will be mentored by Samuel Thibault and myself.

Manolis actually started working on this more than a year ago, so
chances are that you already met.  ;-)  So far Manolis has almost
completed preliminary work to permit cross-compilation from GNU/Linux to
GNU/Hurd using Guix.  This was the first step towards bootstrapping
GuixSD natively on GNU/Hurd (see
which will be the main focus of this GSoC.  The second part of this GSoC
will focus on adjusting GuixSD to boot GNU/Hurd.

The code will be hosted in the Guix repo, probably in branches that we
will gradually merge in ‘master’.  It is excellent news that Manolis’
work will be able to build upon releases of Hurd/Mach/MiG.  The last
missing bit upstream is a libc-for-hurd tarball.

So please welcome Manolis again.  :-)

Manolis, Samuel: feel free to mention whatever I forgot!
