That was my line of thinking

According to the page on github, there have been commits in 2011 (some in
october).  Development looks to be active.  I grabbed a clone from git and
it was requiring gtkmm-3 as a minimum requirement.  I was able to build a
previous version  gdlmm-2.30.0 against gtkmm2 without any problems though.

Don't think so.  All I could find are rpm packages as well.

I agree. If major linux distros haven't picked it up yet, then it makes me
wonder if they ever will.  This gdlmm lib has been around for a good 2 years
if not more. I suppose the lumiera sources could house it's own copy of
gdlmm. Not sure if that would be a good or bad idea.

Is there a 'general' procedure for getting new packages added into
distributions?  Or is it usually up to the community to make that happen?  I
certainly don't want to spend a bunch of time porting the panel system to
gdlmm just for it to get dropped and forgotten.
