So, to make that reality, either split Gideon in several CVS modules....

...or write a description about the number and contents of the different
RPMs to create, and send or provide that to the distributors.

I'd prefer and hint the first approach since it avoids the communication

A good RPM configuration could be:
 1.) "KDevelop core" (requires one of 1. to N.)
 2.) "KDevelop-C++" (requires 1.)
 N.) "KDevelop-Java" (requires 1.)
 N+1.) "KDevelop-useful-Addons" (requires 1. and one of 1. to N.)
