But, about the website, if I remember well, this thread started because of an offer to update the website.
Why don't we accept the offer?
It's a bad idea to reject this type of offer only for prejudices about the attractive.

As I told before, I know many people who reject Hurd after showing some interest, simply because the webpage seems to show a dead project (search about "halo effect")
Not only because of the latest news, but the 90s style appearance of the website, and the outdated documentation.
About docs, these days I've been seeing a mail thread about someone which is working to update this.
