Can we agree upon this and make this mandatory for FE?

Is there consenus on this?

I would not bet on FC, but I guess, you are right as far as FE is concerned.

How to proceed with this package?
1. Apply cvs tricks (I.e. an admin moving the files in CVS)?
2. Re-import the package into CVS under "perl-gettext" and "cvs rm"
3. Let it be in FC-4 and re-import it as "perl-gettext" into "devel"?
