Well, I may be able to partially answer that question: Speaking for the
GNUnet side, I personally simply don't think GNUnet is quite ready for
GNU Ring at this time.

Specifically, we need to make GNUnet easier to install and particular
self-configuring in terms of the network stack (NAT traversal, etc.).
For GNU Ring in particular, I've heard people being concerned about
battery consumption, so we also need to work on the GNUnet-on-mobile
scenario where peers can indicate that they are on a mobile phone and
should not be routing traffic for others, least we drain people's
batteries (and get terrible network performance on top of it).

Once those things are fixed, I would hope the GNU Ring hackers will have
time for a chat, and we'll find out if we could benefit from an
integration. Until then, I would encourage them to prioritize other
issues, even though I would of course like them to use GNUnet
eventually.  Now, if someone wants to see that happen, I'd very much
look forward for people helping out with the issues mentioned in the
previous paragraph -- but note that none of them are doable quickly.
