repository could be distributed as a precompiled alpha/testing release
of vim. I am sure, this would increase the user base.
I must admit, I haven't tested any of the patches from that repository
since I am afraid of having to take care of updating myself and since I
work on many different systems, it's hard to get it done everywhere. But
I think there are many exciting new features, which I'd like to test.
So could it be possible to provide a 7.3 testing release which
integrates these patches? I would certainly use that release and give
feedback. Of course there needs to be a possibility to give feedback to
the patch authors/maintainers as well. Maybe the linux distributions
could also provide a vim-patched package (similar to how it is done with
James, what do you think, could that be possible for Debian?
