"Debian also plans to release an official Debian GNU/Hurd
variant with the "Wheezy" release. There's still quite a bit of
time left as Debian Wheezy isn't scheduled to be released until
late 2012 or early 2013.
"Lastly, there's monetary bounties being offered to work on GNU
Hurd. Among the "open issues" for GNU Hurd bounties include
supporting the Google Go and ADA programming languages, libc
variant selection, and improving GNU Mach memory management."
