Alright, let's stop arguing (which doesn't lead anywhere) and
starting holes in the air, but let's instead start some
heavy-weight brain-storming for ideas on how to implement the
problems at hand. From the dicussions before we already know

- GNUstep needs somewhat tighter management of it's further

- GNUstep needs to better react to proposals coming from it's
users (meaning "people using GNUstep", not just end-users)

My proposal for the first point is setting up some sort of
"GNUstep Steering Commitee" composed of a bunch of people which
would choose the direction. Perhaps 3, 4, or 5 people, the
precise number doesn't matter. It should be core-developers,
people who have authority, knowledge and wisdom.

As for the second point, I propose setting up a discussion forum
(something like a phpBB or something simmilar) entitled like
"GNUstep Future". In the forum there could be sections like:

Could we for now, just make it a little easier (Although I like
your idea). Could we first define and set (e.g. in the wiki or on
the progress page). The things we think needs to be done to get GUI
and Back to 1.0?

I think it is a clear goal. Something we can all agree on, I don't
think there isn't anybody who doesn't want GNUstep to become 1.0.
We just need a list of things to be done and a timeframe.

Can I support this ...

Yes, a new release would be good ... I don't think anybody disagrees
and I don't think anybody wants to insist on exact OpenStep

Yes, we want to keep things simple.

Not sure wiki is best for tasks ... how about defining tasks in the
GNUstep project task manager? We (well, Adam) could set up a new task
category for 1.0 release.

That would be cool. Is that related to the progress page? Since that last update of the progress bar is from 2004/03/03 which is rather old.
