Oh, now I understand what you’re talking about. I have plan to setup CI 
environment (Jenkins? Travis?).

Current state of the NEXTSPACE is somewhat special… I use particular (not 
cutting edge) versions of GNUstep libraries (gui and back) with custom patches. 
So build (or CI) process - along the NEXTSPACE part - should build custom 
GNUstep libraries. Is it fit to your goals?

NEXTSPACE contains its own fonts, icons and mouse cursors with true NeXTSTEP 
look and feel. I’m afraid it is not what you want to do.

NEXTSPACE has it’s own genuine Workspace, Window Manager, Preferences, Terminal 
and so on. It’s already working and functional - give it a try. :)
