GNUstep roadmap (was Re: [Suggestion] GNUstep-test for quality control)

I think you are right and I should stop complaining, I do not even spend time to work on GNUstep, so I am merely qualified to do so. Besides I always was an advocate of the project, so I do not believe I am not ranting as you said. It's just that my my frustrations are due to the fact that although many talented programmers worked on this project for almost a decade it did not live up the (my?) expectations until now. And since I spent some time on GNUstep related stuff I allow myself to be a little frustrated... :-)

But to remain at least a little on-topic allow me to ask this question (as a simple user resp. programmer who needs to decide whether to use it or not): where will the GNUstep project be within 12 months (which will be more or less GUI 1.0)? What is the (realistic) roadmap for the GNUstep project anyway?

I was referring to the problems which arise when trying to integrate different desktops/APIs, the copy 'n paste problem was just one example. As I do currently not run the very latest GNUstep code on my machine (I apologise...) it might be true that this is not an issue anymore, but eg. cutting/pasting normal text from a Gnome app (such as gedit) into a GNUstep app fails to work - at least on my machine.

To quote a now infamous statement: Works on my machine. Please update your GNUstep and try yourself.

Anyway, there are other examples, such as drag 'n drop across apps written using different technologies.

Yes, this is still broken and will be for a long time until Wim takes up this issue again.

As there are still enough pieces of GNUstep that don't work, would you mind to complain about them, instead of complaining about the few that we did get running?

This is nothing specific with you Phil, I am just annoyed about most of the postings in this mailing list and the time I waste every day reading them. Time I otherwise would spend on fixing bugs.
