Excellent spot then! ... that's definitely not how it is expected to be!  

PC should/might generate xxxInfo.plist, where xxx is the application name.
gnustep-make will take the entries in xxxInfo.plist, merge with the
entries automatically generated by gnustep-make, and create the
Info-gnustep.plist.  But Info-gnustep.plist is expected to be generated by

For example, if you are creating an application called 'Test', then PC/you
might create a


containing any plist entries that you want to insert into your
Info-gnustep.plist and that are not automatically generated by

The reason we use a xxxInfo.plist name is that you might be multiple
applications in the same directory. :-)

The reason writing a Info-gnustep.plist is not required is obvious ... in 
most/many cases it's not needed!  Only if you have to add some custom 
stuff into your .plist, you have to write the xxxInfo.plist.

It should be easy to fix it in PC, it's not a big deal really.


Disclaimer: I didn't actually look at what PC does, I assume the reports
that PC generates an Info-gnustep.plist are correct. ;-)
