That’s true — but here it is more in having some people do the two large
complex tasks which currently block adoption (usb + audio).

The Hurd already provides a translator to get transparent filesystem
access to files from remote hosts. It’s sometimes aggravating to see how
close we are — and have been for years. But it needs a few dedicated
people to bridge that gap.

Best wishes,
