Sounds quite good so far and wouldn't require much more than a 'svn
mkdir other' :).

But still the problem what I'm afraid of is that we end up in a mix of
various plugins, plugin releases and users might get confused where
which plugin is how developed and by whom.
OTOH while thinking about, this is already partly the case as it will
be always with independent plugins especially when a plugin author
doesn't use the geany-plugins Sourceforge project and instead use some
other place for hosting.
So, my worries about that are maybe exaggerated. Perhaps it's enough
when we try to keep update to date with the index page at
http://plugins.geany.org and http://www.geany.org/Support/Plugins as a
some kind of reference list of known plugins.
