Right now, I'm mostly interested in the opinion of the GNUstep
developers (i.e. those who are subscribed to these two lists), since
they probably understand the issues better.  Of course, I hope that they
would consider regular GNUstep users in their response.

So, to everyone: please let me know what you would prefer for us to do
in Debian: keeping the old GNUstep release plus (nearly) all
applications, or upgrading to the newer release, and being able to
upgrade some applications as well, but losing some applications, such as
Terminal and Vindaloo.

Please let me know by Wednesday, so that I can make a decision.

Yup, it looks like Renaissance is building fine on powerpc and hppa now,
once I forced it to compile with "-O2", so we should have Renaissance
0.9.0 in Debian Lenny.
