Ok. AFAICS the best solution would be (as it seems like we can't rely on CMake
upstream to constantly send the vim files to vim upstream) to send the latest
version ourselves to the vim upstream maintainer. Is this ok with you, if I'd
(or any other CMake maintainer for Debian's CMake package) do that? I would CC
the upstream CMake author of the vim files, so he gets another heads-up/reminder
and can step in, if he wants to.
Any objections?

Kind regards,
Kai Wasserbäch
