We are still waiting for Mach.  Mike Bushnell, a GNU staff programmer,
says that the code for the microkernel itself looks clean enough.

Supposedly the lawyers at CMU are now choosing the details of the
wording for the copying conditions.

Meanwhile, we are preparing to start work on turning POE (a partial
emulator for Unix on top of Mach) into a full emulation.  Just as
soon as they put the proper notices into the source files.

(CMU says that POE doesn't stand for anything, but I think it stands
for "Preserve Our Essence".)
