Because there is a need for 'Enterprise' users to get at free software
offerred by the GNU project in a central location.  Somone looking for
software to run their office (enterprise) likely doesnt want to wade
through tons of information about GCC, Emacs, TeXinfo and the likes.

Yes we have focused on the tools.  Since packages are being built with
the tools, it was pretty much a pre-requisite to have the tools to a
moderate stage before the packages could begin.  There is specification
and documentation for packages, but no implementation to date.

We have started GNU Enterprise Small Business and have started
implementation for smaller enterprises.
