Re: Tasks list for GNU Mach

   There are some problems with Mach which seem very hard or even
   impossible to fix without using a new microkernel.

Impossible it is not, very hard it is or might be, but so is porting
to a new kernel, which is infact even harder.

   For that reason, we are looking at other microkernels.  We were
   planning to use L4, but it seems it will be something else (either
   a successor of L4, or Coyotos, yet another microkernel).

"We" does not include the majority of the Hurd developers and hackers,
only a very few people.  As it is now, GNU Mach is the primary kernel
that is being worked on for the Hurd, not L4, not Coyotos, and not
some other microkernel; this is how it will be until the day when this
new fork of the Hurd is a viable choice for people to use (and not
only to hack on).
