Package: vim
Version: 2:7.2.284-1
Severity: wishlist


I am connecting to my friend using SSH, and he would like to work together on a document from school. a simple TXT file would be perfect !!
I know there is gobby for that: http://gobby.0x539.de/trac/wiki/Screenshots but it is for X only.

Unfortunately vim do not offer this options of multiplayer edition, or not yet. It would be great that several users logged into a machine could modify and collaborate on a file store on the machine, or on a shared folder. 

a sort of
mc -e multiplayerfilenotepad.txt
could be great, with beautiful colors and stuffs...

thank you so much!

Best regards
