The need for an official GNUstep desktop

All of this discussion on the list has made my consider that GNUstep needs to resolve this confusion once and for all.   Are we a desktop or a development environment?   I believe that we can, and should, be both.   One of the steps we need to take towards doing this is the creation of another project which will be the official GNUstep desktop.

Up until now we've had 4 or 5 projects playing at being the official desktop in an effort to fill the void.

I believe that all of this is senseless duplication and that what we need is a *coordinated* effort towards making a cohesive and attractive GNUstep desktop environment.   We need to focus on what will make an exciting and easy experience for both users and developers.  Whether it is done in the same repository as GNUstep or in a separate one, that's up for debug.

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on the above?

Thanks, GJC
