[Geany-Users] RFC: New Custom Filetypes Repository

We often get contributions for adding custom filetypes to Geany, and we
even have some in the source tree already. We tend to not want to add
them to Geany repo, usually due to limited functionality, or limited
I would like to propose that we add a new repository to Github, similar
to geany-themes, where we add any custom filetypes that are useful, but
perhaps aren't up to par or popular enough to add to Geany proper. This
would give a single place to get them all at once (via Git or Github Zip
file download), and also a repo for packagers to use should they want to
provide a package.
Inside the repo we could have the README or some other file cataloging
all the filetypes, along with who contributed them, their status, like
whether tag parsing works, syntax lexing, and such meta info. As a
start, we could add all of the filetypes from the Wiki, any useful
ones from pull requests, and even any questionable ones already in Geany
(if there are any). We could also add some shell script or something to
install them into a user's home dir all at once, if that's useful.
What do you think?
