I believe that Gorm and ProjectCenter should be included in GNUstep startup. This would allow the user/developer a one step solution to installing all of the essential parts of GNUstep without any need to download Gorm and PC separately. We also might want to think about other developer tools which should be included.

We could. But I had imagined Startup to be something like a bootstrap system, that would then compile and start a graphic installer (still waiting for someone to write this!) that would allow you to select which additional items you wanted.

How about you just simply ask the user at the START of the Startup script whether or not they want Gorm, and whether or not they want ProjectCenter (with a one-sentence explanation of what they are, and that they are dev tools), via a Y/N prompt. If they don't answer within 10 seconds, assume they don't want them downloaded/built.

How's that sound as a good compromise between having a separate package (which personally I don't think is a good idea because it still puts the onus on the user to download it, which is what we're trying to reduce with GNUstep-Startup in the first place) and having it build automatically as part of Startup.
