Let the admins of the hurd Savannah group file a support request, https://savannah.gnu.org/support/?group=administration

We'll need the name and the description to use with the new repository.

Hi again.

I have now obtained permission to add my project to "The GNU/Hurd", via emails to bug-hurd. Remains to solve how to add the project git repo to http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/ Any ideas? As I wrote earlier I have uploaded both the ssh and gpg keys to my account #173094.

Why, in the communication channels of the Hurd; you must know the specifics since you are a member of https://savannah.gnu.org/p/hurd

Yes I have. Where to apply for being part of the Hurd?

Have you considered making it a part of the Hurd?

  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


hurd-cross is a project for cross-building GNU/Hurd and other packages using  e.g. an GNU/Linux host. It contains mainly of a number of bash scripts, for download, bootstrap and compile dependant packages for GNU/Hurd, as well as other packages to build and run on the built image. The scripts downloads and patches source packages, bootstraps the dependant packages for building Hurd, compiles and installs the cross-built packages and finally creates an image of GNU/Hurd to be run e.g. in a Virtual Machine (VM). In an extension the number of built packages can be cross-built to create other packages not yet available natively on GNU/Hurd.
