Indeed the goal is to integrate the IPC Guide into the "regular" GNU Hurd
documentation; status tracked on
<http://darnassus.sceen.net/~hurd-web/open_issues/hurdextras/> (need to
clarify copyright assignment situation).

Improving the documentation is very welcome generally!, but unfortunately
not suitable as a Google Summer of Code project, as Google have explained
in the past.

While we can and will of course help with picking a suitable project, it
is really you who has to have an idea about what to work on.
