Olaf, what do you think; should he just do a project parallel to GSoC?
That is, pick one of the projects from
are these too big (how much time can you roughly invest in this?); then
we could find something smaller. Tyler, please start with reading
<http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/contributing.html>, and the GSoC
may be worth reading too, even though most of that won't be directly
applicable in your case, but it should help you find a topic.
Another popular starter's project, after getting a GNU/Hurd system going,
would be making your favorite Debian package (or Arch Hurd package, of
course) build, if it doesn't already.
