As followups, Thomas Schwinge [debugged and fixed](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-12/msg00044.html) a deadlock with child threads resulting from a regression due to earlier fixes, and Cyril Roelandt shared a [patch series](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-12/msg00018.html) to fix double mutex unlocking with pthreads. We will likely see more fixes like these, given that the whole threading interface changed, which will expose previously invisible bugs.

And several people ported and fixed packages, further increasing the number of debian packages which work on the Hurd: *Svante Signell* ported [mlocate-0.25](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/07/msg00015.html), [gnat-gps](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/07/msg00011.html), [libpst](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/08/msg00039.html), [libetpan](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/08/msg00046.html), [spl](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/09/msg00004.html), [dovecot](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/09/msg00007.html), [xplc](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/08/msg00054.html) and [parrot](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/08/msg00056.html), [x86info](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/09/msg00008.html), [atlas](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/09/msg00009.html), [rrdtool](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/09/msg00011.html) and [gdb](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/09/msg00018.html).

And he made the test pass for [FIFO sockets](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-09/msg00053.html) with mknod and [added](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-09/msg00005.html) a size parameter to tmpfs for easier usage in scripts and a [version suffix option](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-10/msg00009.html) for gnumach configure. *Cyril Roelandt* fixed a [ps](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-12/msg00012.html) bug, a documentation typo [in ps](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-10/msg00032.html) and a missing linker flag [in procfs](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-10/msg00025.html). *Matthew Leach* [fixed](http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-hurd/2012-11/msg00037.html) a compilation error with older GCC versions due to duplicate type definition. *Ole Streicher* fixed a bug in the Makefile of ftools-fv which was [exposed](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/10/msg00059.html) by testing on Hurd. And *Samuel Thibault* [removed](http://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2012/12/msg00005.html) the out-of-date floppy-warnings in the debian installer.
