I've got an approximate deadline for Lenny here:
Days until Lenny release (15 September 2008) 100

I think having a more up to date GNUstep in Lenny would be very good,
that'd also encourage me to udpate the livecd.gnustep.org again.

I'd wish someone picked up emacs.app too.

The http://www.opentrack.ch/ developer was kinda disappointed when
we tried to build his app on Linux, the Windows and GNUstep versions
are not in sync so half of his stuff didn't work...

If we manage to make new and non memory leaking (timemon.app+gnustep-gui, right 
bheron?) tarball releases and Hubert can insert them into Lenny, I'm all up
to help transition all the GNUstep software in Debian for Lenny. Including
