+The GNU Hurd is under active development. Because of that, there is no
+*stable* version. We distribute the Hurd sources only through CVS at present.
+
+Although it is possible to bootstrap the GNU/Hurd system from the sources by
+cross-compiling and installing the system software and the basic applications,
+this is a difficult process. It is not recommended that you do this. Instead,
+you should get a binary distribution of the GNU/Hurd, which comes with all the
+GNU software precompiled and an installation routine which is easy to use.
+
+The Debian project has commited to provide such a binary distribution.
+[[Debian_GNU/Hurd|running/debian]] is currently under development and available
+in the *unstable* branch of the Debian archive.
