You assume incorrectly.  The description field of geany-libgeany rpm states:

This package contains the core functions of Geany which will be used by Geany plugins.

I have never bothered to compile the actual geany plugins for Centos 6 due to a lack of demand and interest.  I did compile and make the geany plugins for Centos 7 available on my webpage a little while back, but that's apparently not what you're looking for.

 The first fails with:

Install both geany and geany-libgeany at the same time and it will work.

That I have no control over.  If they made it available then I probably wouldn't bother duplicating the effort.  As stated at the top of my webpage, it is just stuff that I use that can't (easily) be found elsewhere.
