Github works pretty well for this, I'm not stingy with commit access and 
I'll add anyone as a contributor, or the Pull Requests works quite easily.

IMO geany-themes doesn't really belong in geany-plugins.  The filedefs 
belong in Geany like Nick asked for some time ago.  IMO they should be 
in the next release so people can sanely write colour schemes using the 
features that were previously implemented but the filedefs were never 
updated.  The colour schemes themselves (besides maybe a few "core" 
ones), belong in a separate project (ie. geany-themes on GitHub) or on 
gnome-look or some such site.
