Here's what I was picturing with this repository:

1. sanely ordered collection, organized in categories
2. headerdoc/gsdoc comments throughout
3. add tags to the comments that we could use specifically for repository purposes, i.e. "author", "maintainer", "url", "description", etc. ala python distutils package tags
4. some sort of bsd ports-style access to the classes

in order to resolve the packaging dispute, perhaps we could create a mechanism to allow users to actually create a custom library from only the files that they check out? what i mean is that if i want the Snazzy, Spam and OhMyGodYouAreUgly classes, i could pull them down by specifying a name for the library, and a GNUmakefile would also be dynamically created and pulled down with the code, specifying only those files i'm grabbing along with the other pertinent information.

i know it sounds kinda complicated, but we're dealing with compiled code here, as opposed to perl modules from CPAN...

whatever works and works well, i'm all for. as long as we can get to the code...

What might be of interest, too, is a collection of simple code examples.
That is, not code meant for reuse in projects; but to show how things
work, how things don't work (i.e. what mistakes one can easily make) and
to show differences between platforms (gnustep/os x). I'm thinking of
all the small code snippets that Richard and the others often put in
their replies to newbie questions.

Greetings,
Martin
