      The procedure is straightforward: Bram M decides whether a patch goes
      into the vim source. He has some voting going on for different features
      if you contribute to the Kibaale Children's Centre charity.

      Vince Negri's conceal patch has undergone several modification cycles to
      accommodate new versions of vim, as an example of this difficulty.
      Presumably others could update some patch they're interested in and make
      that update available as yet-another-patch. This process could end up
      making a mess on vim-patches, though.
