GNUstep has a its own theme, the one distribuited with the sources.
You can install serveral themes, one could be:
I developed it with Riccardo Canalicchio some years ago and other people contributed to it, like Bertrand. I know that Bertrand made also its own theme maybe based on the rik one, but looks like the OSX dark theme they made nowadays.
Rik is working quite well, but i discovered that needs some love to fully work with libobjc2 v2. This is a must that rik needs, but actually I can't work on it because i'm writing a window manager and a kit, XCBKit, using GNUstep and objc.
So you have a theme with some eye-candy (around the net you can find other screenshots) but needs to be "ported" on libobjc2 2.0, and i repeat, the port is quite important. It is probably not so difficult to port it, so if you want, you can try to port it, and do pull requests.
I really don't know how the hosting is managed actually, but if developers and mainteiners says that moving/hosting to another place will be better, I will agree.
Now I can back to try to understand how a window manager interacts with a dock bar...

Oggetto: Re: [ML] Re: Hosting of gnustep.org
(Hi there, I am quite new here, I am sorry for interfering here, I wanted to.)
Is that really necessary?
I do not know how much GNUstep is “libre”.
But usually, I would tend to stay out of big company platforms (f.e. Amazon)
Making an exception only on some (like GitHub).
Theoretically (but that is a very personal opinion), to me the best platform
would be a self hosted one. Relying on other(s) services the least possible.
To me, these are tough choices.
Eventually, I think the only thing GNUstep may need is just an aesthetic restyling.
I have something more to say, But I think I am just going to copy-paste that to the IRC channel
If you want to hear them.
