Unfortunately, only 2 plugins for Nemo where available in Debian, but
Nemo comes with more plugins, e.g.:
nemo-compare: nice support for a compare tool, for example Meld (which
is available in Debian).

Nemo Plugins/Extension available in Debian Cinnamon.
It seems to me that you are not really reporting a bug, but requesting
that we package more nemo extensions. In Debian the procedure for that
is to send a bug to the wnpp  meta package with the RFP: prefix
in the subject for each specific package, you can also cc us in the bug
report if you consider that appropriate. The cinnamon team has no
intention to package every extension, we don't have the manpower to do
so, and many extensions are not up to the Debian standards. As rule of
thumb, if it embeds/forks other well known application/libs, we would
prefer to do without. On the other hand, we welcome collaborators
willing to maintain acceptable extensions under the team umbrella.
