To make this kind of unified installer or source tree or ports collection or

I also prefer using distribution/operating system's installation system. Having something GNUstep specific would perhaps allow developing a more specialized GUI that would always fetch latest source no matter what OS.
When someone upgrades one part, it ideally must be tested for
fallout on all supported OS/Platform combinations, to make sure everything
still works, or even provide packages. I don't think there is the manpower,
and hardware available to do all this.
