Could you please make a version of Geany available for EPEL8 with basic themes and plugins? In EPEL7 Geany is split across a number of packages. Currently installed:
EPEL would benefit from a lightweight/fast/capable IDE such as Geany.

FEDORA-EPEL-2020-5392d2e45e has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 8. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2020-5392d2e45e
So far so good but I wasn't able to install geany-plugins-geanygendoc due to the error below (I don't use that plugin but for the purposes of testing I installed more than I normally use).
Problem: conflicting requests
- nothing provides python-docutils needed by geany-plugins-geanygendoc-1.36-1.el8.x86_64
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)
But overall it's looking really good though, thanks for the effort.
FEDORA-EPEL-2020-5392d2e45e has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 8 testing repository.

Thanks very much for noticing me Ian! Building a -4 release including a fix for this.
Plugins -4 build fixed the geany-plugins-geanygendoc issue for me.
I now have all of the plugins loaded (unrealistic installation but done to help testing) except for geany-plugins-latex because I don't need it and the dependency payload is almost 450M. Someone who can benefit from it needs to look at that one. However from what I can tell it would have installed without any problem, see below.

I'll be messing with Geany a lot in the coming week, but I think if I find anything wrong it would be a generic issue applying to all builds, so I think we can close this one. A great result.
