This looks like an interesting enough thing to put into GNUstep, but until CoreAnimation exists in GNUstep it won't work. The developers will need to finish CoreAnimation first. What the website talks about with Chameleon only running on OSX/iOS is that only OSX/iOS currently have an implementation of CoreAnimation. There's nothing stopping it from being ported AFTER CoreAnimation is complete. But it is not complete yet. if you'd like to see Chameleon working on GNUstep, a good place to start would be hacking on CoreAnimation.

Just a short comment about Chameleon.  If it is truly a clean room implementation
as the website says, you should be able to use it on any platform.  This has always
been my understanding of the idea of clean room development.  Perhaps I have been
misinformed.  I would welcome any comments (examples would be helpful) to help me
form a corrrect understanding should my thinking be incorrect.

This new framework is a clean room implementation of the work done by Apple for iOS.
Since Chameleon relies heavily on Core Animation, a proprietary technology owned by
Apple, it can not be used on other platforms such as Android or Windows. It only allows
iOS apps to be ported to the Mac.
