1 If anyone brave would like to play around with improved syntax
2 highlighting for ebuilds, eclasses and GLEP documents (and at some point
3 in the future when I figure them out, Gentoo style ChangeLogs)...
7 Chances are you'll have to re-emerge vim-core, etc-update and accept the
8 changes to /etc/vim/vimrc before these will actually work. (For those
9 who care, using set filetype= in a global configuration file is a bad
10 idea, since it can't be overridden from plugins... Using setfiletype is
11 the correct way to do things.)
13 The ebuild/eclass syntax file should be fairly clean, the GLEP one is a
14 mess and rather incomplete since vim doesn't particularly like that kind
15 of syntax... Patches encouraged.
