Allan Kelly <allan@...> . If he doesn't answer (neither to
direct mail nor to list posting), you might do one of the following:
- post here a context diff between the existing file and yours;
- upload your script somewhere and post the URI here; or
- send it to Bram <bram@...>, mentioning that you tried
contacting the current maintainer without success.
If Bram accepts your version for distribution as the "official" Basic
plugin, I suppose you would then become the "maintainer" of that script,
which means that you would be expected to answer queries about it on the
vim list and/or fix bugs brought to your attention either directly or
via these lists.
