Dear Maintainer,

*** End of the template - remove these template lines ***

In /usr/share/vim/vim74/autoload/netrwSettings.vim, on line 34, the
function 'netrw#NetrwSavePosn' is called.  This line should instead call
'netrw#SavePosn', as defined in /usr/share/vim/vim74/autoload/netrw.vim,
on line 9835.

As is currently, settings-related features of netrw do not quite work
properly: a quick example can be seen by calling ':NetrwSettings' from
within vim:

Error detected while processing function netrwSettings#NetrwSettings:
E117: Unknown function: netrw#NetrwSavePosn
