Yes... I think anyway that others projects could have the same dilemna.
It could be perhaps better to create a "gnustep kits" project, non-gnu,
hosting all the kits. It sure will be easier to host frameworks on it than 
hosting them on main gnustep cvs and thus requiring for each a fsf copyright 
assignment... yet it will provide us a single entry point for useful 
frameworks. What do you think ? it sounds to me like a good compromise.
[anyway that would be additionally to the real important thing to do, 
that is, display/advertise the available frameworks on the website 
and provide releases...]
