Hi Olaf, 

(Do you prefer Olaf or antrik? - did I already ask that?)

Firstoff: The status is great work! 

(I didn't yet comment on it here, but I already worked a bit on the wiki 

I have three comments:

Wouldn't "The students and mentors did a great job!" be more useful when seen 
from the "hey, I just entered this site, let's look what the Hurd is doing 
with GSoC" viewpoint? 

Also I want to ask: Would it be correct to say "Four of the students still 
work on further improving the Hurd". 

Differently put: 
@Zheng Da, Flavio Cruz, Andrei Barbu and Madhusudan.C.S: 

        "Are you still working on the Hurd?"

(@Sergio: I know that you still do (from this list) so I didn't ask you :) ) 

I ask because that is the best possible outcome of a Google Summer of Code 
project, and if you're still taking part in the Hurd development, we should 
say that on the GSoC status page.

This part is great! 
It shows directly, that the bigger GSoC gave something to the Hurd development 
- and for a reader it shows increased dynamics.
