Hmm ,, just saw in Juri's blog that he intented to make the GNOME CVS
module a read only one, with the main repo in arch. Then I don't see any
point in having it in GNOME CVS. 

The main benefits of having it in GNOME CVS is imho to have the
translators being able to work directly against the CVS and to have
others that want to contribute being able to work against the same CVS
as they are already working (and having accounts).

Having it in Arch and sync it every know and then doesn't seem to give
much compared to having people that want to try it out using the
tarballs instead.

Just my thoughts,
