As we already use Debian as our primary distribution, there is no point
in creating a completely new installer. It makes much more sense to just
port the new standard Debian Installer to work on the Hurd. (As opposed
to the "bootfloppies" presently used on the K* images, which is totally
obsolete, and never run natively under Hurd...)

Anyways, we already considered adding "port Debian Installer to Hurd" to
our list of project ideas. However, this is a bit tricky: This task
requires interaction with both Hurd and Debian, and it's not quite clear
which of the two projects is more appropriate as mentoring organization.
Also, the mentor should ideally be familiar with both -- but the person
I had in mind refused.

A few of us(d-i translators) started exploring the option of porting D-I to the Hurd. The link is here http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Hurd
I have added it to the projects list.
