Is it possible to get involved with documentation of the plugins?
Yes, that'd be great. You'd need to talk to the maintainer of any plugin you want to write documentation for - I think Yura Siamashka is the maintainer of the GeanyDebug GDB plugin. I'm the de-facto maintainer for GeanyLua (but it already has documentation in SVN).
Or/also general docs for geany-plugins would be good too IMO. You could join the geany-devel list and start a thread.
The 'internal' plugins distributed with Geany are also missing some documentation from the manual: http://www.geany.org/manual/dev/index.html#plugin-documentation
Also a feuture request, on a side note: I found that I can use gcj to build java-code and then use the debugger-plugin to debug javaprograms from geany, wich is excellent of course. Would it be possible to add build arguments to the "java-mode" as well, beside the compile options, in the build-menu (making the java-mode more similar to the c++-mode for example? To compile and build java with Geany I now have to put this rather complex string into the compile options: gcj -c -g -O "%f" && gcj --main="%e" -o "%e" "%e".o
Check the manual, it should be possible to add a linker= command to your local filetypes.java, then the dialog will also show it.
Also having a dropdown menu where I can choose from different compilers would be good, so that I could easily switch between javac and gcj :)
Well, Geany will only run commands, not understand build systems, but we are working on making commands more configurable.
