I would not agree. For people like me who actually deal with a couple
of CVS modules it would be handy to have gnome-common packaged (I am
trying to manage everything as RPMs - unless I develop it myself which
is not the case for gnome-common).

Sure. Same about the rest of the gnome:) I'd say the fact that
gnome-common is useful for gnome developers only does not adjust the
idea to keep it non-packaged and non-released.
