Fred isn't totally wrong, unfortunately.  I find that I have increasingly 
little spare time to spend on GNUstep due to involvement in other projects (in 
particular, FreeBSD consumes a lot of my open source hacking time).  I'm also 
finding it increasingly difficult to find motivation to invest time in 
Objective-C code - C++11 now, for me, fills the niche that Objective-C did 
(compiled, can be statically linked with no run-time dependencies, some late 
binding where needed, reference counting / ownership semantics) and 
higher-level languages with strong memory safety guarantees are more 
interesting for everything else.  

That said, I'd be happy to host another meeting in Cambridge.  We're a bit 
constrained by term dates (and by the fact that I spend a slightly excessive 
amount of time travelling), but outside of term we could probably find a 
college that's willing to host a nice dinner without much difficulty.
