Package: The Backbone Project
System name: backbone
Type: non-GNU

The Backbone Project is being created by a set of developers of GNUstep and 
GNUstep-based applications, to design and build a complete "desktop" system 
based on the GNUstep libraries and with an updated NeXTish look and feel. Among 
the goals are:

* Building a library or set of libraries to facilitate
  Objective-C/GNUstep-based applications acting as an integrated
* Creating integrated services to assist users with making
  applications work together.
* Completing and using an integrated hypertext help system for all
  applications (this is mostly completed)
* Creating, completing and/or "filling out" a set of simple, easy,
  standard applications, among them a text editor
* Creating and/or adapting a Workspace application, which is something
  between a file manager and a graphical shell application.
* Creating a "session manager" a la gnome-session, to handle window
  manager and the Workspace application (for X11-based systems).
* Completing a Preferences application for setting options for the
  desktop and the underlying OS.
* Integrating a good multi-window Terminal application for
  command-line and Services use.

We intend to write a good deal of new code, but some of the basis for the 
project is located at:
