sounds like a reasonable idea, let me play with it a bit. It put it in GPL V2 or later. This allows us to put it GPLV3 or later in the future, in case it becomes necessary and the rest of GNUstep gets relicensed.

while asking Dirk Olmes about the state of Zipper, and what plans he had, I

because of some little bugs, where I now have the patches in the OpenBSD ports

to do so. Knowing that, I politely offered him to host zipper on GAP.

It took him a while to answer, and to think about it. He said its unfurtunate, 
and he has no idea whether he will work on it again.
On the other side he was really happy with the offer to give it a new home on 

Its a useful application, integrates nicely in GWorkspace, therefore it would 
be a shame to leave it bitrotting.

I'd take care of it, creating a new page on GAP, importing it into CVS, and all 
this stuff needed.

The only concern I have is with the License, it doesn't really have one. I'll ask him 
whether we could license it as "GPLv2 or newer".
I'll approach him with this topic. I hope/guess he will be fine with that.

Where should it be imported into CVS? user-apps, system-apps?
