I suppose you mean Paolo Maggi: if you didn't get a response it's

The plugin sounds really interesting! My suggestion is to attach it to
bugzilla for easier review and discussion. You can also create a page

About adding it to the gedit package, I'm not sure: our current policy

In general it's our intention to put more emphasis on external plugins

or even revive the gedit-plugins package in cvs if someone has the time
and dedication to maintain it.
