I'd really like to see a geany-plugins release, it would be much
easier for normal users (and perhaps easier for any plugin maintainers
that don't want a separate release as well).

geany-plugins SVN trunk is just a place for devs to use, but if someone
wanted to be maintainer for a geany-plugins release, perhaps it could
go like this:
1. geany-plugins maintainer creates release branch & contacts
2. Any devs who want their plugin in the release copy/merge their code
3. g-p maintainer makes release X days/weeks after branching
I for one would be happy to merge the GeanyLua plugin.
But this of course requires someone who wants to maintain the
geany-plugins release process (any volunteers?) ;-)

building all plugins, and IIRC it installs translations for each plugin
that has them. (Most plugins also have autotools for building
