<mark_weaver>a_e: fwiw, I suspect that apart from packing the hurd itself, there would be a fair bit of bug fixing and patching needed to get things working on the hurd. there certainly was for mips64el.
<Steap_>I remember having issues with Guile on Debian GNU/Hurd
<mark_weaver>(a small number of patches, but non-trivial amount of time finding the roots of the problems)
<mark_weaver>someone on #guile, who apparently works for google, is helping me find the exact legalese I'd have to agree to. if it's acceptable to me, I'd probably be willing to be a mentor. but I wonder how much else I'd have to do in the next few hours.
<mark_weaver>ouch. "6.5 Amendments. Google reserves the right at any time to amend this Agreement. Any changes made will be effective immediately upon notice, which we may give either by posting the revised Agreement on the Site or via electronic mail. Your continued participation in Google Summer of Code after such notice will be deemed acceptance of such changes."
<mark_weaver>I'm very excited about the work you'd like to do, and would be willing to do a lot, but I'm not willing to give Google a blank agreement with my signature on it, which is essentially what that boils down to.
<Steap_>mark_weaver: this might be valid in the US
<Steap_>mark_weaver: but I'd like to see them try this kind of shit in Europe :)
<ph4n70m4s>mark_weaver: you will still be able to help me without being a mentor :-)
<a_e>mark_weaver: An agreement which one party can change unilaterally without notice (posting on some site does not count as notice) looks quite illegal to me.
<mark_weaver>perhaps, but I don't have time to get a reliable legal opinion on that before the deadline, and even if I did, it wouldn't matter. I refuse to sign an agreement with clauses that I don't actually agree to, in the hopes that a court would indemnify me.
