Bug#926966: RFA: vim-lastplace -- Vim script to reopen files at your last edit position

David Rabel
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the vim-lastplace package.

The package description is:
 Intelligently reopen files at your last edit position. By default git, svn,
and mercurial commit messages are ignored because you probably want to type a
new message and not re-edit the previous one.

Maintaining this package is not much work. It is a small package with only one
vim addon that does not change much.

That's great!

Actualls that's because there are no bug reports in BTS. As this package
is very simple, there seem to be no problems at all so far. :)

But there is one bug report for Ubuntu: [0]

It's actually a problem with vim-addon-manager, that is already fixed in
newer versions: [1]

James suggests there, that we could use dh-vim-addon for packaging and
drop our maintainer scripts. That would be a nice cleanup of the package.

It probably is a good idea to get in touch with him and with the vim
packaging team. [2]

That way you can get a lot of good advice, get to know more people and
if you want to, you can get more involved with packaging vim packages.

Yours
  David

That sounds good. If there is a dedicated debhelper program to deal with this type of package, it may reduce unnecessary maintenance work. I will try to do it.

I'd like to. But before I ask a question, I think I'd like to consolidate the knowledge of dh and vim script first. I'm deficient about these two parts at the moment.

Have a nice day!
