Well, thats up to the new maintainer.  IIUC the idea was that plugins
could be housed in the geany-plugins repo so people could find them,
but not have the be part of the combined plugins if the developer did
not want, or was unable to meet, the build or release schedule
requirements of the combined release.

Maybe Frank can say what the arrangement is intended to be now git
does things differently?

I am not sure where embrace got to in its inclusion, it was created in
2009 according to ML search.

There was some discussion about August last year looking for a
maintainer for embrace, some bloke called Matthew was pushing an
unofficial plugin called zencoding as an alternative, but that hasn't
become official yet either ;-)

I guess no maintainer was found. :-)

The only ML reference to externdbg is one from Dominic being confused
what it was, so its totally unknown AFAICT.
