The project as a whole does not seem to be putting much effort into
attracting new users - like you say its a very selective club. In fact
if they were deliberately trying to deter new users they could'nt do
much better.

And if GNUstep is supposed to make it easy to develop applications, I
would like them to define "easy"! EVen just installing the environment
is a pig. I was able to install SmartEiffel and write a small trial
program in the time it took me to work out how to get "make" to run for
GNUstep. And even using SMartEiffel is hardly easy either.
