This group is not part of the GNU Project.

The goal of this project is to port the OSKit to the PowerPC, then change OSF Mach to use this, and to run the GNU Hurd on it.  Currently, there is only a preliminary port of the Hurd to the version of OSF Mach on which MkLinux runs, but unfortunately this version of Mach only supports older PowerMacs.  The OSKit will provide modern device drivers from Linux, and OSF Mach will use it in a way like GNUMach does.
