No, it is released in source form as a gzip compressed tar file.  

But most gnome softawre includes a .spec file, so you can type:

    rpm -ta gnome-package.tar.gz

We also ship the debian setup, so you can build .deb files from them
easily (dont ask me how this works).

Red Hat Labs provides rpms on a regular basis.
