I am not saying that the hurd-i386 port shouldn't
be moved to ports (see the report I made on
https://lists.debian.org/debian-hurd/2018/09/msg00000.html , my only
potential concern was with the workload of debian-ports).

I am only saying that this is really a bad timing.

Time will. I will have time later, but that'll be after the Buster
release, i.e. a *way* less coherent set of packages since a flurry
of package updates will happen, thus less usable, if installable at
all. The only alternative I have is to make the release now with the RC
bugs.
