I'm going to create a GPLv3 status page so that people know what to help with 
for that.

Right now, I think we're pretty close.

First some background: I will be starting a new job in October and most
likely wont have as much time for GNUstep from then on. In addition for
the last two weeks of September, I will be on holidays without much
internet access. The current week is the last, where I have plenty of
time for GNUsteps coding.
If we aren't able to motivate some new programmers for gui and back,
progress will slow down for these modules. But since the last GNUstep
release there have been quite some changes to these modules. The cairo
backend is now almost usable and gui has been cleaned up and brought
closer to MacOSX. This process isn't completed but the results should
already be a huge improvement over previous GNUstep releases.

What I would like to do now is fix some new introduced bugs (NSSplitView
comes up strangely, the cursor bug has reappeared) and give the current
code a good testing and after that, come up with a new GNUstep base, gui
and back release. (A base release is needed for the error recovery
header) Does this schedule, release by mid/end October, fit your?

Attached you find my statistics on 10.4 compatibility of the GNUstep
header files.

One outstanding issue is the change to LGPL 3, here I still have an
unfinished new version of xdnd that will need some more work. If nobody
takes up this task (I could send my files), it wont make it into the
next release. This means, at least back still needs to ship with LGPL 2.
