      As you all know I wrote VAM to solve a problem: Vim plugins
      distribution.

      The Vim community suffers from a second problem:
      There are many plugins - some are outdated - and its sometimes hard to
      find the "jewels" - because they may be hosted on github only.
      There is a wiki, but its not integrated in the main site - neither is it
      easy for external people to hack on it just using what they know best:
      "Vim" (right?)

      For this reason I'd like to start a wiki like text file based git
      repository which summarizes the most useful tools (and maybe
      alternatives) so that people who want to find answers about:
      "How to I most efficiently code xy" or do "z".

      Of course vim help files come to mind, they already support links and
      code blocks - and there are existing tools to turn them into HTML
      (so that the contents can be pushed to www.vim.org one day) - still
      markup is little bit limited.

      Are there alternatives you'd choose for such an effort which can be
      translated to HTML easily and which can be edited and read by Vim, too?

      Also would you be interested in joining and helping maintain such a
      git based wiki?

      Its not about writing comprehensive documentation, rather about creating
      an index about which tools are known to solve a problem. This can be
      completion, configuration, running a compiler and more.

      Feedback about this idea and ideas are welcome.
