When looking form an organizational perspective, I think the GNUstep project (Base, Gui, Make, Back) are part of the FSF GNU software collection (http://www.gnu.org/software/).

While applications are not under the umbrella of FSF and managed individually by
the respective authors.
Confusingly, gnome is also listed there together with gnustep, but gnome defined themselves quiet differently than gnustep on responsibility and scope. e.g. gnome believe they deliver user experience, while gnustep believe they deliver development tools. Thus the organization hierarchy and ownership to FSF doesn't seem to explain the differences.

please do not confuse things. We want do deliver a whole experience. But the gnustep "core" team maintains only the essential KITs and libraries, the development tools and some essential applications. It is up to other developers and groups to complete the experience and deliver what they think best. Different people have different opinions about the final product. Think about XFCE vs. GNOME. Or even KDE4 vs. the KDE3 "fork".

You may want to look at Etoilé, the GNUstep Application Project or Backbone for projects which cater together a set of tools.
