Some of these are part of the usual set of question. :)

I'll send all this now.

Ok, here are a bunch of questions, in no particular order:

- Who are you ?

- Could you provide us with a short history of NeXTSTEP, OPENSTEP and GNUstep ?

- Could you describe the profile of your community ? Which users ? Which developers ?

- Which applications and environment (business, home, scientific, anyone) are you targeting ?

- Do you plan/wish native "*step" ports for famous cross-platform applications (Mozilla suite, OpenOffice.org, GIMP, etc.) ? Does it make sense ?

- I see PDAs are targetted (http://www.dromasoftware.com/etoile/mediawiki/index.php?title=Image:Etoile_pda_ui_01.png). Does Etoilé and GNUstep in general has some specially fitting features for PDAs ? (ligthweight, ergonomic ?)

- What is your relationship with MacOS X (which is supposed to be "next-based") ?

- Do you have a roadmap and/or a timeline ?

Yes it is, I was not able to follow the issue.

Is it still time for a few questions for Etoilé ? I could scratch my head and find some today...

Do you have any specific questions for Etoile, BTW?

Ok, so Etoilé people agreed too.

I'm going to contact the selected project project tomorrow.

So it will be Etoilé, unless Lucas add a vote for qomics (in which case qomics should win, because I'm fine with qomics too).

I like 'Etoilé', GNUstep has not much publicity given the popularity of Gnome and KDE.

I keep an option for Qomics.

I'm not much aware of other active projects on Gna!, I've not quite followed what's happening on the forge...

Vincent may be too busy right now, but I guess it is fine to take into account his previous vote https://gna.org/task/?func=detailitem&item_id=2047#comment4

- bins
- qomics

(unless he votes, indeed)

Lucas, it is usually best to recommend several projects. Otherwise, it is quite hard to reach some kind of consensus.

Funk seems interesting but there was no commit since 3 month. Is it still alive?

My vote would goes to
- 1st Etoilé (use most of our services and seems alive and promising)
- 2nd GCfilm (well, same comment)

Feel free to post your vote (Vincent ?), I'd like start this thing by contacting project at at least November the 15th.
(I'd like to try to make 2 hotspot during my presence at CERN, and I live December the 7th.

I'd recommend the funk project for hotspot #8.

From now on, we should try to make screenshots by ourselves, whenever possible.
