Why not, could be useful to some and have more semantic/visibility than the Wiki.
Tho, the Wiki filetypes also often comes with additional details, like the snippet for filetype_extensions.conf, or a (possibly useful) build script for Geany, comments, tips, etc. Maybe there should be some similar stuff in a repo with them then, maybe even an automated scritp capable of altering filetype_extensions.conf and alike?
Just a thought without huge reflecting: Couldn't this be done by a plugin? I mean, a plugin pulling from git repo filetype defintions and putting it into .config/geany and e.g. pasting snippets into snippets.conf.
On thinking about it some more, a repository is not very user friendly for getting just a few files from, and a user would usually only want those for a single language. Its either get all by cloning the repo or a single file at a time from github.
So yeah a plugin that grabs all the files in a directory and applies the patches locally would be a good thing.
Thomas and Matthew seem to be converging on getting upstream Geanypy adapted to the new plugin architecture, hopefully it will be added to Geany-Plugins by 1.27 and then this could be a first use. Running Git from Python will be much easier than from C :)
