-Take a look at our [[project_ideas]] list.
-If you are a student and want to apply for one of these tasks,
-please mind the distinct [[student_application_form]] for the Hurd.
-Note that there are also two [Hurd-related ideas for X.Org](,

+ [produce working Debian GNU/Hurd installation

+ * *[[Karim Allah Ahmed|kam]]*, mentored by *Sergio López*, is working on

+As the Google Summer of Code 2010 has already started, you can no longer
+participate as a GSoC student. However,
working on one of these projects is still a good opportunity to get started with Hurd development.
