Perhaps useful for argument’s sake, the Wayback Machine has the GNUstep home page archived from January 1997, with the logo prominently displayed throughout the site. [ http://web.archive.org/web/19970127185353/http://www.gnustep.org/ ]. The “About GNUstep” link there contains credit for the logo by Ayis Theseas Pyrros, and this text is still present on the current site.

That makes total sense.   Now I need to figure out how to contact them.

I'd suggest contacting them to stake your claim, other than that I don't know.

This is because one other concern would be if they became sucessful enough,
they (or their agents or publishers) may turn around and claim the project
is infringing their rights/property in the logo.

Which could be problematic if they file a suit.
