personally I find the term newbie to be derogatory. anyone with the smarts
and guts to try their hand at hacking the hurd deserves my repect. that is

Would it make sense to send this Orientation Paper to every fresh
subscribed list member? It would make a good, friendly impression to
Would it be a big problem to incorporate this in the list server
subscription mechanism?

Would it be helpful to set up a list of projects with some status info
and names/adresses of supporters, to post few weeks.
People willing to port/code/hack would have a handy overview, and people
who look for the situation at the Hurd would see if/that something is
going on here.
