The Future of the Vim Project

Christian Brabandt has provided an update on the current status of the Vim project. He mentions that access to the GitHub organization is possible, and admin rights have been granted to him and Ken by Bram’s family. He also invited new members to join the Vim organization. Christian plans to merge bug fixes, security-related fixes, documentation updates, and other clear improvements, but will seek approval from other project members before merging anything for the main source of Vim. He also discusses the possibility of a Vim 9.1 maintenance release and potentially moving to a more modern approach in the future. Regarding the Vim homepage, Christian is considering moving it to another provider due to stability issues with the current hosting platform.
