I made some changes[1] to the HACKING file for Geany-Plugins, mostly 
trivial plus I copied and pasted Colomban's committing information from 
Geany's HACKING file.

I made one addition here, and wanted to see if it's cool with everyone:

> +* If you're working on a specific plugin, prefix the summary line

If it's stupid, I can just remove it, but it seems like it might make it 
a little easier, especially for IRC and email commit messages.

Let me know.

P.S. Are commit mails working for Geany-Plugins?  I didn't get one for 
this commit.
