Well, of course the geany-plugins is packaged for at least some
distros, in particular debian and ubuntu.  That will of course get
greater exposure, and maybe contributions, and also maybe bug reports

BTW you mentioned a third party library, but you didn't say what
library.  It would of course have to have a suitable license to allow
it to be included.
