I have no problem at all to contribute the code to FSF, but there are some issues that must be resolved: - our frameworks use some of the Omni frameworks; before committing everything to the FSF this dependency must be removed; this should not be a huge problem, but must be investigated; - some code snips have been taken from mailing-list messages; I have asked the original authors an informal permission when we did the first submission to SourceForge, but I think an further check should be done before giving the copyright to FSF (all the authors are cited in the source files);

This is an issue, I believe. If you can't get the copyright assignment, kill those bits, add a comment about what they did and we can reimplement them.

- we subclass OCUnit classes so Sente too must contribute its code to FSF for complete integration.

Eventhough, that would be nice, I don't think this is absolutly necessary for a contribution. GNUstep depends on other free code that isn't a GNU project. It might be an issue if we ever wanted to make this testing framework the "official" GNUstep testing framework.

By the way, inside our frameworks there is also a prototype for a Log4OC implementation; Mirko Viviani has done it upon our request. It's still a prototype, but I think somebody could be interested in it too. If Mirko agrees, this would be readily available for inclusion in the GNUStep project as it only rely on libxml.

Yes, I see no problem with this. Certain features of gnustep-base also rely on this library.
