Bug#622827: vim-runtime: recent changelog not included in package

Package: vim-runtime
Version: 2:7.3.154+hg~74503f6ee649-2
Severity: minor

I can't find the recent changes to vim in the Debian package.  ':help
version7" gives me a list of all the patches through 7.3, but not the
subsequent patches.  It would be nice to add these to version7.txt when
you apply new patches to the Debian package.  If it is too much trouble
to put it in version7.txt, it would be fine to put it in /usr/share/doc.
(Actually, it might be nice to add a note in README.Debian indicating
that changes are in the on-line documentation, since users might wonder
why there is no changelog in /usr/share/doc.  Just an idea.)
