I have the proposed list put up in a html page.

Fred also offered to help out with the presentation.
That is cool. Perhaps he knows more about FlexiSheet which should be at least roughly presented. Getting help to work on it, complete it and complete its porting would be extremely cool.
Some of the links go to pages which don't have an extension, therefore the 
plain html is shown. This is because I mirrored and some of 
the pages just don't have an extension. But this works well when opening the 
files locally.
Yes, I noticed that.

It would be really great if we could get the vespucci issue resolved. 
Presenting GNUstep apps, I think it would be cool, to use
a GNUstep browser to do that ;)
I can't reproduce it.
Further, the list of applications. Did I missed something important that should 
be mentioned?
I wanted to add Cenon to the Image applications too.
Fred was talking about adding CoreBreach to the Games. I only run OpenBSD, 
therefore cannot show it, but If Fred could take install it on his notebook and 
shortly show it, and talk a bit about it, what improvements in -base and -gui 
were done to get it to work, that would also be good.

Do I have applications in the list that you think I could skip, not worth 
perhaps yo ucan show that ome exist, but don't take the time to present them really if you are tight. I am thinking of zipper, of the cd play app, remote desk... affiche.
So far, I updated all GAP pages, made sure, that they all have the same look n 
feel, and for some, I added some more infos.
If someone could review it, check whether there is important info missing, 
would be good if it could be updated.
I also started to update some pages in for apps I want want 

I also started approaching some developers of other applications not hosted at 
GAP. Asking them for their future plans of their applications. So hope to get 
some feedback to not only talk about the state of the art, but also give an 
outlook for the future.

Therefore, for GAP apps, and the general GNUstep apps, someone has plans/news 
that should be spreaded ;)

For GAP: I think, after a new gnustep core release, there will be some updates 
coming, Riccardo has some stuff in the queue.
Further, probably NeXTGo should also get an update, since the actual release 
doesn't build with strict gnustep make 2.0.
Remember me that I shall release :) ANd we can have a look at next go, I thought CVS was fixed? I think to remember tinkering around it.
Further, PictureFrame has some flaws, i.e. the cluttered menu, and the 
weatherService doesn't work. Also Ladder doesn't work for me, it starts, but I 
never managed to start a game, it doesn't take my mouse input. I feel ignored ;)

Another idea I got why playing with Vespucci:
Nearly all GNUstep applications don't have a working help. I question why? I 
guess creating rtf documents is not that easy? At least for me,
this is true. But creating html pages is easy, just fire up the preferred text 
editor, and start typing.
the help viewer app... where did it go? what happened to it? I remember it many years ago and looked quite next-ish. Perhaps it should be cleaned up and get official into usr-apps in gnustep
When the image problem may be fixed, and there would be a 0.1 release of SWK, 
and a 0.1 release of Vespucci. Then I got the idea, that the help button could 
call a service open URL and point to local help html files. Creating nice 
looking html files is fairly easy. Making it easy to generate help 
documentation, wold probably encourage more people to create some at all. Maybe 
need some talking to Nikolaus about a SWK release.
We have a problem with text input fields. Fred hat a short glance and wrote me and Nikolaus an email, but i don't know how to reply :)
