First of all congratulations on the Brave GNU World exposure. Great !
And a pitty though that Slashdot did not pick-up on the 1.0.0 release, but
we can't have it all...

Then now to the great invention of GUI bundles. All seems to be working
very well, except that there is something that I do not understand.

Where I still do expect the parts to stand for (from left to right):
gnu- Objective-C runtime
gnu- Foundation library
gnu- GUI library

When installing gnustep-base it gets installed in gnu-gnu-gnu. How does
base know what GUI libary it will be used by ?

Here more or less the same situation arises. Maybe setting
gnu-gnu-gnu-xdps instead of libgnustep-xdps makes the system more flexible
and future proof.
