If you look at the changelog from the package you'll see that the
evolution extension has been dropped. This is because the
gnome-python2-desktop bindings are written with gtk2 and evolution
needs gtk3. For all gtk3 apps you'll need to use the automatically
generated gobject-introspection bindings which evolution-data-server.
So ultimately just packaging it up won't fix the problem, you'll need
to have gtk3 support for it.
PS the upstream URL for gtg in the rpm looks to be dead so you need to
fix that up too.
