I'm running OSX and X11 and I'd like to be able to use some GNUstep applications on my computer. I'd be very interested in being able to use the gnustep-baseadd library/framework AND the gnustep-gui libraries (framework?) on top of apple's Foundation and AppKit. iThink that the base library needs to be more clearly divided between the Foundation functions and the Additions, last time i tried to compile it I had to compile the -base lib and then use an object file from that to build the -baseadd lib because of a misplaced (IMHO) symbol. Also, iThink that the gnustep-gui project should be split into similar AppKit lib and an Additions lib (-gui and -guiadd?) so that I can use apple-apple-apple with the -{base|gui}add libs and use GNUstep apps (possible? ever?).

I would be happy to provide *some* access to my OSX box to the core developers if they feel the need to build on an apple box. iThink that i could also tar up the headers for Foundation and AppKit and distribute them. (I'm going to check on the legality of this before I do, I believe that its the *implementation* that's copyright, not the headers... I hope) either way, I have a machine to test on. I'm not too good with actual coding (I'm still learning) so I don't know how much help I would be on that front.
