Assuming we are talking about the homepage:
I'd say we either create an overview page for the common plugins,
similar to what is now at http://plugins.geany.org/ but instead of
linking to each plugin's own webpage, provide one page with sections
for each included plugin and some common notes about installation,
downloads and such.

Alternatively, we could redirect http://plugins.geany.org to
http://www.geany.org/Support/Plugins and update it accordingly.

I don't mind much how we go in that matter but I'd like to delay this a
bit until the technical (SVN layout changes, proper build system and
code changes) are done or at least basically done.
