 I am not aware of an RPM package of gdp. You could try alien to convert a deb to RPM. I believe you are using GNOME 2.32 which is paired with version 0.4.6 and 0.4.7. The former is available as a deb that might be convertible.
<http://ppa.launchpad.net/sinzui/ppa/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gedit-developer-plugins/gedit-developer-plugins_0.4.6-0ppa55~natty1_all.deb>

Or you can build from source <http://launchpad.net/gdp/incubation/0.4.7/+download/gedit-developer-plugins-0.4.7.tar.gz>. You will need to install gnome development libraries, and specifically gedit's and gtksourceview's dev package which will provide the needed headers.

unpack the tarball and from the terminal
cd path/to/unpacked/tarball
./configure
make
make install

Thank you for the quick response. I installed alien and did successfully install your gedit plugins. All working thanks.
