Well, they can use the official Debian packages then, what's the problem?

There aren't enough wizards working on the Debian packages. It would be great to see some of the undoubted skill on this list used on them instead of producing policy-busting contrib packages for no apparent good reason.

Discuss-gnustep mailing list

Is it ego, or what? Why, as a lurker, do I constantly read about developers doing 4 to 6 different versions of almost the same thing? Are GNUstep developers allergic to collaboration? Why is it that nobody seems to agree on anything, or at least seems unwilling to discuss issues and come to a consensus?

I have no vested interest in the answers to these questions, I just think they should be asked, after lurking for the better part of a year on these lists.

To an outside observer, the project, and developers, seem very disorganized and unfocused.

I'm not trying to stir up trouble, or piss hordes of people off, I am just offering a cold, cynical view, in the hopes that I am wrong, or simply provoke thought on the part of others who are developers or lurkers on the list.

Curiously Yours,
