GTK+ was initially created for the GNU Image Manipulation Program, a raster graphics editor, in 1997 by Spencer Kimball, Peter Mattis, and Josh MacDonald—all of whom were members of eXperimental Computing Facility (XCF) at UC Berkeley. Licensed under the LGPL, GTK+ is free software (and open source) and is part of the GNU Project.
Thats a quote from the first site. It does not claim that the GNOME foundation initially developed gtk, but at the moment, they are in charge of the project.

Maybe that's why I got confused- On the right side of the page it gives the specs-

Developer GNOME Foundation

Yet, the text said different. Thanks for the clarification...

Cheers
