I don't believe what you are saying about this being a chance for Gnustep to be used by more people than developers. Gentoo seems to be aimed at higher level linux folks / developers than a lot of other distributions. I don't think it is really to be considered a user distribution? I agree that it would be great to get GNUstep easy to install and for people to try and use, but I'm not sure this distribution is the one that could put GNUstep infront of a large 'user' possible developer audience.

To get GNUstep in front of a large user audience, it has to be complete and a snap to install on EVERY distribution.

Personally, I love Gentoo. But when I contacted the portage maintainers about building up some ebuilds for the entire GNUstep frameworks and application tree (like GNOME and KDE have on there) all I heard back was the sound of chirping crickets.
