I noticed that quite a few of modules have not been updated, so it
would be great if you can upload your tarball as soon as possible 
you plan to do so.

'make distcheck' doesn't pass for gedit and gtksourceview on Fedora 
but it worked fine on Fedora 21. It's probably due to an intltool bug
that I've reported (but I'm not 100% sure the bug is in intltool):

Maybe other gnome modules are in the same case.

I have multiple modules blocked on this issue as well. A naive guess
is that it's due to this change in Automake 1.15:

  - As a consequence of the previous change, "make distcheck" will run
    using '$(distdir)/_build/sub' as the build directory, rather than
    simply '$(distdir)/_build' (as it was the case for Automake 1.14
    earlier).  Consequently, the './configure' and 'make' invocations
    issued by the distcheck recipe now have $(srcdir) equal to '../..',
    rather than to just '..'.  Dependent and similar variables (e.g.,
    '$(top_srcdir)') are also changed accordingly.

    Thus, Makefiles that made assumptions about the exact values of the
    build and source directories used by "make distcheck" will have to
    be adjusted.  Notice that making such assumptions was a bad and
    unsupported practice anyway, since the exact locations of those
    directories should be considered implementation details, and we
    reserve the right to change them at any time.
