Hi Tom,

Welcome to the Hurd!

The best way is to just run the Hurd yourself,¹ learn what it can do for you 
and write the documentation you would have liked to have when you started ☺

Or, if you have a knack for journalism, you might want to start the 
month/quarter of the Hurd again (I haven’t been able to write those for a few 
years now due to limited time, but they had a pretty big impact - my happiest 
moment was when in a discussion someone said “isn’t the Hurd dead” and someone 
else gave a link to the most recent month of the hurd in reply: “no, it isn’t: 
the Hurd is alive and well!”). See 

- writing the qoth: 
- skeleton: 
- qoth next: 
- writing news: 
- contributing to the web pages: 

When writing the qoth, keep in mind to never promise anything: Only show what 
was done with a link to something people can test (when they are willing to 
extend sufficient effort).
