No reason to get upset. As usual there are a lot of different oppinions 
in this mailing list. And I, for example, like your idea of a shared 
panel very much. I think this years GNUstep presentation should be 
focused on user applications, as during the last year we made the 
greates progress in this area. And OGo is surely the most wellknown 
application in the bigger GNUstep environment.

I second Fred here... a joint effort between OGo and GNUstep would be a very 
good thing, and we should focus more on applications this year.. (plus the 
classic (?) Gorm demonstration...)

What about presentations on some of the interesting application, that 
where writen/completed in the last year? Of course we should also give 
short talks on Gorm and Renaissance, to catch the atention of new 
GNUstep users. Or just use these, when showing how to extend the given 

Who would be willing to do presentations at all? I intend to be at this 
FOSDEM, but don't have anything to show, being to lazy to develop 
something in the last year now shows.

I could do a small presentation of the Help system (HelpViewer, how to 
create help files, etc.). I really hope to improve the help system current 
state before the Fosdem, but even if I can't, a quick presentation of the 
current Helpviewer method could be interesting. Or not, you decide ;-)  
Anyway, gnustep's people are encouraged to do some presentations ! take 
advantage of the fosdem -- the audience won't be very large (mostly gnustep 
devs), but it's interesting nonetheless. 

How about taking the demonstration material/demos from the upcoming show, and post them on the web as tutorials afterward, so those who can't attend FOSDEM can get a similar experience/revelation about GNUstep? Think of it as a "marketing" thing. After all, the presentations that will be made will have very practical application for any developer using GNUstep.
