Thanks for expressing your interest!  Feel free to join us on #hurd on 
libera.chat.  It's  a good place
to get advice.

Please note that I am a hurd enthusiast, not a developer.  Which filesystems 
would you like to port
to the Hurd?  That sounds like quite a job.  I know someone worked on porting 
ext3 to the Hurd, and it
mostly works but still has some bugs that make switching to it not so good.
