Hello Edward!

Welcome aboard! For getting into the TCP/IP stack you could take a look at this item: https://savannah.gnu.org/task/?5469 I guess the current pfinet (TCP/IP stack) uses the linux 2 series TCP/IP stack. Recently lwip has been ported to the Hurd. It sounds like Samuel (main hurd maintainer) wants to rewrite pfinet to use lwip instead of the linux 2 TCP/IP stack.

As far as I know, there has been no work towards the automated testing framework.

Best of luck!


P.S. I'm not really a Hurd developer, I just follow some of the news items. :)

I have quite a bit of free time over the next year and would like to contribute to GNU Herd. I've looked at the available projects but I'm not sure if they're up to date? Some were created in 2006!
Anyway, the two projects I'm most interested in are building the TCP/IP stack and the automated testing framework. Are either of these still needed? :)
Hope you're all well,
Edd Haigh
