Uhm, no. The Hurd people moved their stuff over to savannah some time
ago, barely using our BTS. Upstream work is not being discussed on
debian-hurd either, just the port.

The same is probably true for most other projects. We keep a BTS, and we
mirror their upstream source, that's all. I wouldn't say we *host* them.
