In regards to the editors, where are the ones I considered from popcon (to
which ~10% of ubuntu users are signed up).

I skipped vim because it's a dependency of ubuntu-minimal, and kdevelop
because it's more fit in kde-development.

I suppose eclipse doesn't quite fit in either for Gnome development, so it's
between geany and anjuta. It looks like anjuta has a higher installs/usage
ratio than geany, probably because it's endorsed quite a lot. Meanwhile
geany isn't so much but is actually used more, giving it a nice advantage.

I believe it's quite reasonable toconsider Geany as an IDE to be included in
the package for gnome development.

(btw, Eclipse is an issue in Ubuntu, I've seen several unhappy posts on UF
that it's outdated)
