There is a serious policy violation regarding all programs dependant upon gnustep-base1 and themselves. They break Section 9.1.1 of the Debian Policy.

Using /usr/lib/GNUstep for non-lib and executable binaries for direct invocation is not permitted.

Mozilla and OpenOffice.org also violate the FHS in a similar way. The
packagers say that for such huge applications, having files all around
the system is more a problem than violating FHS.


Why should we let this go by? The Debian Policy sets rules for all packages not just some, thus similar bugs should be filed against mozilla and openoffice.org.
