Hello!

There's several ways that you could help.

The wiki would be a pretty great place to start!  And relatively easy.

This web page gives an overview about how to contribute to the online
wiki.

https://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/contributing/web_pages.html

Send your patches to address@hidden  No one uses the web-hurd mailing
list.

Some things you could do:

https://notabug.org/jbranso/cheatsheets/src/master/hurd.org#wiki

https://notabug.org/jbranso/cheatsheets/src/master/hurd.org#copyread-the-arch-hurd-installation-page-somewhere--its-got-lots-of-good-details

I made a video a while ago showing you how to edit the wiki:

You might also look into editing the official Hurd documentation.

https://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/doc/hurd_toc.html#SEC_Contents

You could try to change this section:

https://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/doc/hurd_4.html#SEC18

The Hurd no longer uses the libthreads.  Instead we use libpthreads.


Maybe my online cheatsheet would be helpful to try to understand some
hurd concepts:
