This is an index of prefixes used by different GNUstep-related libraries and frameworks.

- Using a prefix
All symbols exported by the framework should have the prefix. This includes class names, protocol names, global variables, functions, and defines. Deviate from this only if it's strictly necessary.
- Picking a prefix
Prefixes should be all uppercase and at least two characters. Avoid conflicts with prefixes that are already listed here. Since there is a finite number of two character prefixes, you should only use a two character prefix if you're really going to make good use of it.
- Adding to the list
Feel free to add to this list.
To avoid trouble, don't "register" too late (ie. just before releasing after spending a bunch of time developing; someone might have grabbed the prefix before you), or too early (don't want a bunch of prefixes tied up by vaporware).
Unless the project is obvious (like GNUstep itself), include a contact for the prefix, or a link that provides contact information.
If you "register" your prefix below, please stay in alphabetical order.
