I think that we should try to fix the support for a large amount of memory. 
Somebody posted a work around today to debian-hurd, and as it is in the
Linux code, maybe it is not too difficult to find the real fix by looking at
some newer version of this Linux code.

I have made a huge progress with mach.texi, which is now 157kb large and
documents the IPC interface (messages, ports), the virtual memory interface,
the host interface and the in-kernel debugger.  That's about 50% of the
interfaces.  I could give it a priority and "finish" it within a week.
It is based on the manual pages, which have the same license as Mach.
I uploaded a copy of mach.texi, gpl.texinfo and version.texi to
(also available as mach.tgz)

Please have a look and let me know if you think this should be in 1.3.
BTW, even if gnumach 1.3 is that last version of gnumach, this will serve as
a good base to document oskit-mach, as the interfaces are the same (just the
compilation etc would have to be rewritten).
