Why don't the Hyperbola team work on porting the HURD kernel instead, if they want to stay in GNU Land with the GPL license?

The GUIX team ported HURD, so they should get together with those guys and port HURD as the base kernel and then backport all of the mitigations from Linux and OpenBSD as they see fit with their own implementation and code whenever they have license convulsions. It seems like security is their goal, but if they want to stay GPL compliant, while moving away from the Linux Kernel, then they should work on bringing the HURD to the mainstream, and then a group of kernel security gurus can work with their team to fix it up to scratch with implementations of the modern mitigations.   I don't know how realistic time wise, or man hour intensive that approach would be however.

Hi Free Software Foundation!

It is written in article "Free GNU/Linux distributions":

"Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre, a long-term support simplicity-focused
distribution based on Arch GNU/Linux."

Free Software Foundation,

Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre is not free because is changing to BSD.

Free Software Foundation,

The Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre is still in list of Free GNU/Linux
distributions.

Will Free Software Foundation remove the Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre of the page
that lists the GNU/Linux <https://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html>
distributions
that are entirely free <https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html> as in
freedom?

If yes, when Free Software Foundation will remove the Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre
of the page that lists the GNU/Linux
<https://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html> distributions that are
entirely free <https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html> as in freedom?
