Quite a number of organisations exist to manage the finances of OSS projects, eg SPI.
The "problem" is how do the developers get the money if they are not "officially working" on the Hurd?!
For me it sould be like : hey guys, can one of you take a week off and work 100% on the Hurd?... we pay you for that! :-D
 SPI is a non-profit organization which was founded to help organizations develop and distribute open hardware and software. http://www.spi-inc.org/
Sounds nice. I'll take a look at it. Thx
Oh, one more question... was it the proper mailing list to post to?! If yes, where are the developers' answers!? ^_^'
hey guys... we are offering money here ! :-P
I really hope we can find a way to help you guys create what should be the GNU OS's heart. 
 No hard feelings, I'm a big penguin fan! :-P
