Just playing devil's advocate here, as I don't necessarily support the idea of a forum... GCC and Linux are not toolkits/frameworks!  GCC also has an extra blocking point to forums in that it's an application, not a "large library of reusable software".  The fact is that GNUstep is a very different beast and as such would need to be treated differently.  Also, one of your previous points were that we shouldn't be doing/not doing things because other projects are/aren't.
