before the Hurd 0.3 can be released or if they just release it.

Yes, I think the most important thing now is to clearly set what are the requirements for 0.3. http://hurd.gnufans.org/bin/view/Hurd/GNUHurdStatus should be considered.

My personal opinion is that 0.3 should include the ext2fs patch and I'm even optimist that all issues about the patch can be cleared till FOSDEM.

I'm under impression that DHCP is important too.

Apart from these features, a broader testing of the Hurd is needed -- some ideas can be found in http://hurd.gnufans.org/bin/view/Hurd/GNUHurdStatus .

Buggy software gives bad impression and I think we should at least mark the bad things. For example, we can have message in the beginning of INSTALL-cross that it's largely outdated, and rpctrace can always print message to stderr that it's unusable for serious work (e.g. debian packaging). These "marks" are easy when we have complete list of what doesn't work right.
