Below is the list I have in mind.
To me, these applications are sufficient to be a nice desktop environment

I think it will be better to have everything in one place
and all developers can peek into each project from time to time.

 While I think it is a good idea to have applications of
 a desktop environment in one place,
 it may not be with GNUstep "core".
 Here is an argument for similar situation:

 GNUstep is more powerful than a foundation for a desktop environment.
 Because of the tight relation between GTK/GNOME, Qt/KDE,
 no one will try to use GTK and Qt to write server applications.
 ( Well, the argument here is not completely right here since
 GTK and Qt start as widget toolkit for xwindow. )
 If we have a desktop environment with GNUstep "core" in one place,
 people might think GNUstep is just like GTK/Qt.

 Having GNUstep "core" and desktop environment in two places
 is not too bad for users.
 At least GNUstep won't be shadowed if the desktop environment successes.
