First, I should mention that there is already an effort to write a COCOA 
frontend (  It has never been 
released (AFAIK), and I do not know how far along the code is.  My impression 
is that help would be rather welcome (and I do not recall if the original 
vision was to do an installer or a file-sharing GUI or both).

Second, yes, there is an API.  Now, there is the "old" 0.8.x API 
(src/include/gnunet_ecrs_lib.h and gnunet_fsui_lib.h mostly), and there will 
be a new API for 0.9.x (svn/gnunet/src/include/gnunet_fs_service.h).  Both 
have some stuff in common, but the 0.9.x-API should be both more powerful and 
easier to use. OTOH, 0.9.x is only partially implemented, so it would not be 
as straightforward to test your code right now.

Finally, I think the mailinglist for development issues is gnunet-
address@hidden; help-gnunet is more for user-issues.  I've cc'ed Heikki 
Lindholm, the author of gnunet-cocoa.
