Package: vim
Version: 2:7.4.488-7
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Vim is a good editor. But, aside from being an editor, it's also charityware.
It was designed by its creator to encourage programmers to join a good cause:
Supply Kibaale's orphan children with food, education and medical care.
The upstream version of vim has that message in the welcome screen, as well as
(afaik) the Ubuntu one, but this version has replaced it with Debian stuff info
which has nothing to do with charity.

So please, if you care enough for those poor people's livings, restore that
message on the welcome screen of the program.
