I am waiting for an answer from you.

If within one week I still do not get a reply, I will remove your project.
You will still be able to register it again once you have the time to deal with the registration issues.

Are you still willing to host your project at Savannah?
If not, please tell us - we don't bite, and it will make us gain time.

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

I didn't have a look at your source code because of the following reasons:

Some of your mentioned packages was released under the Common Public License which is GPL incompatible and the "Eclipse Public License Version 1.0" is also GPL incompatible.

So there is no change to host such a package beside the "Can I apply the GPL when writing a plug-in for a non-free program?" -question mentioned in the GPL FAQ:

If you can explain this more detailed to me, we will review your source code.

A new project has been registered at Savannah
The project account will remain inactive until a site admin approve or discard the registration.


While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific "Group Administration" page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

What is it?

Vimplugin is a eclipse plugin that allows to use VIm as editor component inside the Eclipse IDE.

But why that?

VIm is one of the best editors (to be polite). But it is not an IDE. On the other hand, Eclipse is the IDE. But its editor is lame in contrast to VIm. VIm is lean, Eclipse is extensible. So, just take the best of two worlds.

How does it work?

Vimplugin is based on Tip #1031 (thanks to Pavel Tavoda) from vim.org and relies heavily on JTA, a swing-based java terminal emulator and the SWT_AWT bridge of Eclipse 3.

Where can I get it?

By now I have developed a very raw prototype tested with Debian Sarge and Eclipse 3.1. Drop this zip-file into your eclipse directory and run Eclipse. The binary "vim.org" (that's the one without X-bindings) should be on your path. By default *.txt files can be opened with VIm using "Open with".
