-> This month Philip Charles created a new [LiveCD](http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian-cd/current/) for the Hurd,
-> which brings us a big step towards installing the Hurd from the Hurd
-> (without the need of a Linux based installer).
-> If you enjoy testing stuff, please give it a try.
-> Also Thomas Schwinge migrated the [nsmux](http://www.bddebian.com/~hurd-web/hurd/translator/nsmux/)
-> and cl-hurd *(lisp bindings)* repos into
-> our [git repositories on Savannah](https://savannah.gnu.org/git/?group=hurd),
-> making them easier to access for other contributors.

+> Hammar [[hurd/libchannel]] repositories into our new [*incubator* Git

+> made [mlton](http://packages.debian.org/sid/mlton) build -- together with
+> Samuel Thibault, who first had to enhance [[GNU
+> Mach|microkernel/mach/gnumach]] to support allocating more than 1 GiB of RAM
+> to one user-space process, which mlton needs.
+> On the go, Samuel also fixed a number of other bugs here and there, for
+> example together with Eric Blake and Roland McGrath hashed out a difficile
+> issue in the filesystem servers regarding POSIX conformance and system
