For item 1, I like to suggest move the web site over to sourceforge.net.
If advertisement on web page is a concern/annoying, we can use Trac like 
to host GNUStep site. Trac can even support auto-build feature(bitten).
Check out http://trac.edgewall.org yourself.

To me theme is not an important issue, issue is GNUStep community is not as 
active as other projects. Apache,Firefox,extjs just to name a few.

Also there is no killer app in GNUStep. 

All the software people need is on Windows, GNOME or KDE.

I like to suggest we come up with a killer app to 
demonstrate GNUStep's write once run everywhere feature.

If GNUStep have a killer app, people will install GNUStep system on their OS.

Pick a most used software(maybe FireFox ?) and port the source code into objc 
language and GNUStep framework.
