with upstream? :)
The thing I'd most like to get done for Buster is a replacement for
vim-addon-manager. A dh_* helper and dh sequence addon, tentatively
named dh-vim-addon. It should support specifying whether plugins are
compatible with vim and/or neovim, and install the plugin's files in a
directory structure that's compatible with Vim's packages.
Some more ideas related to that are in my response to Sam Morris's
email about similar functionality.
Other than that, I'm intending on extracting the Debian related runtime
files to their own project (in the newly created pkg-vim-team group) on
salsa.d.o for easier maintenance. Since they're included with Vim
