so long vim maintenance

Hi guys, it's a bit of a sad moment, but I've just removed my name
from the Uploaders list of all vim-related packages I was involved in,
namely: vim, vim-scripts, vim-addon-manager. It has been time to
realize that I no longer have the time and the interest to maintain
vim-related packages, especially due to my (not so) recent "betrayal"

The relevant notes for this list are probably the following:

- for vim itself, please check I've pushed to the right branch my
  change (it's "debian")

- for vim-scripts I've also uploaded, fixing an pending issue

- for vim-addon-manager I've uplodaded to, but ATM no-one is a "human
  maintainer" (using lintian wording) of it any more. I believe there
  is still interest from James' point of view to keep the package team
  maintained. If it is not the case, the package should instead be

- finally, it looks like James has remained the only active member of
  the old team in maintaining Vim; maybe it's time to consider sending
  out a "call for help" for Vim maintenance?

So long.
