While this isn't entirely true, he/they are right. GNUstep needs to be

majority doesn't know, doesn't want to know and doesn't care enough how and why. All they care about is "does it install in one go? if not, I'll

Exactly. That's why all distributions need up-to-date, completely-thought-out, easy-to-install packages in the native packaging format.

On the other hand, no one will give a sh*t, whether GNUstep eventually
installs smoothly on Debian, Gentoo or FlavourDistributionOfTheWeek if
there's nothing, no Tool, no Application, no nifty Thing that draws

Yep. So I guess we shouldn't bother making packages, since no one is using it, right? "Let's call the whole thing off"?
