<snip>, very good analyiss

Suggested next steps:

- define project roles (and use person redundancy)
and last, but not least:
- observe and copy behaviour of successful players (*)

I like to comment on your final next steps on mainly on Cbjective-C language.
IMO, from a sysadmin's perpective.
Objective-C is not popular is becuase it is not easy to get a project done.

not like perl(or python), there are tons of library/classes can be used already on CPAN. when I need to write a script or program, what I need to do is really just assemble lego blocks, find the object library and put them together. break it apart and reassemble it to different
structure that I like.

If I choose to use objective-C to implement my project, I need to write all the classess(modules, in perl's term). there are no existing classes in public domain that I can use to avoid the wheel reinvention. I kow we have misckit, kits from omniweb etc. but we need a central repository to store all those object kit or IC pak.

I still have hope for objective-C lanauage and GNUStep. I like to see and help them propser.

(*) there are many inferior projects that have great success compared to their alternatives. If it is not in the "idea behind", then whay it is? Go, find out and apply to GNUstep. Reasons are various, including: community suppport, poject management, knowledge management, publicity and visibility ("if it is visible, it should be good, no?"), friendliness, openness, flashiness, coolness, colourfulness
