Bug#496503: vim-full: Please talk about "filetype plugin on"

Package: vim-full
Version: 2:7.2.000-2
Severity: wishlist


For us, the lame vim users, 2.7.2c disabled "Filetype plugins" (that
is, they are no longer automatically enabled) and, as lame we are, it
took a while to first look at NEWS.Debian.gz where it says about that,
and later find out how to enable filetype plugins (add "filetype
plugin on" to .vimrc).

Maybe the NEWS file could say this where it says that it's no longer
auto enabled!

Anyway, thanks for packaging the best editor ever made ;))
