GNUstep is a GNU project to implement a Openstep/Nextstep-like environment on normal unix/linux systems.
Benefit to Fedora
Providing the GNUstep environment for Fedora which is available on other Linux distribution like Debian or Gentoo Linux.
This is a entirely new feature which has no impact for other packages. Only the gnustep-make package, which is part of this feature was updated to the most recent release.
How to Test
- Try out to build and running the gnustep-example package on Fedora.
- Download the gnu-example package.
- build the gnu-example package on a local machine
- Install it and try to start any application offer by this package.
GNUstep needs the objective C environment which is provided by the gcc.
Not required. It can be introduced after the release of a distribution without any impact for the user. Is only an enhancement.
