Thank you for your work! I noticed that vim built from this PKGBUILD doesn't read /etc/vimrc, it only attempts to find a global vimrc in /ush/share/vim. Could you please change lines 36-37 to:

sed -E -i 's|^.*(#define SYS_.*VIMRC_FILE.*").*$|\1|g' src/feature.h
sed -E -i 's|^.*(#define VIMRC_FILE.*").*$|\1|g' src/feature.h

to make it work correctly? Like here:

Also, would it be possible to include the CVE-2017-1000382 fix from the official package into archlinux.vim here (see I tested it on my system and it seems like Vim still doesn't respect umask when creating swap files (and in my opinion, having all swap files stored in one place is simply more convenient).

I have a strangeness with regard to CTRL-V behaviour compared with the standard gvim package. In gvim I find that the visual mode ctrl-v+ctrl-m creates the expected ^M in the text. However, in gvim command line (after the ':') ctrl-v+ctrl-m becomes <C-M> and that doesn't match any real ^M chars in the text making edits of script output etc etc much harder. I tried removing all my customization and it makes no difference. in vim in a terminal the command line behaviour is 'correct' in that ctrl-v+ctrl-m produces ^M as I expect. I don't believe this is caused /usr/share/vim as when I substitute the gvim version of /usr/share/vim for gvim-gtk's version the 'wrong' behaviour is still present in gvim-gtk2. I prefer the speed of this version, but would like it to match gvim.

@dgq: thanks mate for reporting these issues. I use a shell script to keep this package up-to-date and, suffice it to say, it is not perfect. Should be fixed in the latest commit.

There's something funky going on ever since . Notice how the hashes change even though the files in question haven't. Compare to its parent:

There's another seemingly spurious change in the Maintainer comment line as well.

Every new commit since repeats this weird set of changes, with only a few numbers changing in the hashes (something virtually impossible to happen even if the file were changing, which they aren't).

I suppose acl is in core so it is not needed.

bidulock commented on 2018-07-28 19:38

gvim.desktop has a bad checksum also acl is a dependency (for libacl)

Oops, I use an automatic method to bump this package and it seems to have gotten this bump wrong. I just committed a fix.
