This is a git repository of the official Vim sources from Additionally it offers a branch with the source tree including the latest runtime and message files.

Documentation: README_gitrepo.txt from the stuff branch

NOTE: This repository was originally based on Vim's subversion repository with git-svn, but now uses the official patches for updating. For the sake of cleanness it will definitely be completely rewritten some time. Because Vim, including the latest runtime files, is officially available via a Mercurial repository since the beginning of 2010, vim_mainline.git will be discontinued in the near future. Please keep this in mind when using this repository as base for your work.

Maintainer: Markus Heidelberg
