+1 for this. I always wondered why it is named anjuta-gdl while libgdl
seems better name for it, and as a matter of fact I had around
'libgdl' (I was well aware of the name clash with gdl) package of mine
when the review request was on progress. But at that time I wasn't
fedora contributor, so I didn't comment on the name...
