I'm not going to be sticky about this point (i.e. make Debian Jr's membership
conditional upon it) but I do agree that SchoolForge should not be Linux-
specific.  It is my personal ambition to see every Debian Jr. package work
properly on Debian/Hurd.  Also, the Debian project itself is becoming aware
that the existence of the Hurd project means we need to be more careful about
avoiding Linux-specific language.  It is really just free software that we
are about.  Linux happens to be the most popular free OS of today, but it is
not necessarily going to be that way always.
