Please read emails before replying half a dozen times.  I said:

You somehow interpreted this as 'GNUstep is GPL'd and therefore can't 
incorporate Chameleon code'.  GNUstep is not GPL'd, and even if it were there 
is no problem incorporating permissively licensed code in a restrictively 
licensed project - that's the point of permissive licenses.  

The problem is that GNUstep is part of the GNU project, and requires copyright 

That said, there's really no point in incorporating Chameleon into GNUstep.  If 
it provides a working implementation of UIKit on top of our AppKit 
implementation, then you are free to use both projects without the need for 
either to subsume the other.
