Hello Gregory, hello list,

1) Getting the website changed as we discussed.
2) Creating the official forums.
3) Updating documentation and examples so that they are current and correspond
with what GNUstep is today.
One thing that came to my mind again was a page of success stories. More than just the two applications on the wiki's
success stories page (one of which is a 404 link). I gather there are a couple of deployments around that would prove
that GNUstep is a) alive and b) interesting for "serious business" (And what about the mobile platform efforts,
haven't you been there before iPhone and Googlephone? Then it would deserve some report, proving the multi-platform
aspect very nicely.). I think that if you can get something like that together, it would deserve a place rather up
front. (Compare the idea to the popularity of screenshots on project presentations. WRT an API, this makes much more
sense then mere screenshots.)
Sorry for not being able to actually contribute much...
BTW, the meeting in Frankfurt sounds like a good idea.
In fact, time permitting I would be very curious and try to get there just to have a look "from close". I'm merely an
observer, pushing back my own ideas about what I could do with it month after month, but Frankfurt is literally around
the corner, so this could end up being my first visit to anything remotely like a convention...
