That is it, yes.

Yes, but the real answer is that we should fix vim.

That's only the buster release.

The hurd-cd page

points to that release, but also points to the latest published image:

which did get tested. That page also points to the daily builds, but
tells them as not being tested.

I don't think we want to use the word "testing", because that would be
confusing with the testing distribution, which this is not about.

More to the point: what pointed you to the daily builds?

In general that's really *not* what webpages, wiki, etc. should point
at, since there is no guarantee that they would work, not only because
of vim, but also because that's the unstable distribution, which keeps
being non-installable.

I have now dropped it from the explicit list of the daily build, I don't
know if that will be enough.
And again, that will definitely not guarantee installability, since
that's the unstable distribution, it keeps getting broken, that's its
normal state.
