This is quite incorrect. In fact it depends on what you consider "GNUstep", eg gnustep-base is very read for prime time for a very long time. And in use in realworld enterprise systems.

If you target gnustep-gui, explicitly address that. You might have noticed that the GNUstep project itself doesn't know what its about ;-)

This is baffling to me.
