ViPlugin -- Anyone using it?

I'd like to get a feel for how many people are using the ViPlugin. Has anyone made any code updates? Is anyone interested in doing so? There haven't been any comments since the update back in November, so I'm curious if all the vi fanatics left ;)

I have a fellow developer that uses it periodically and would use it more
the closer it gets to the real thing (he's used VI for a long time).

I have been using the ViPlugin for about a month now. I'm not a real vi power user, but I the plugin helps me keep my hands on the keyboard. I haven't had any problems with it and use it for at least 10 hrs a day during the week.

I probably use just the basic commands; move, insert, change, put, yank, search (the least).

I really appreciate this plugin, thanks to the developer(s) for it.

One of my coworkers used it for a while, but found it didn't keep up with him too well... he's been using Vi for a long time I guess.

Dwayne,
Since you are one of the original creators what would you like to see happen to it? Do you want others to submit changes to you? Some plugin developers want help and some do not. If your just wondering if it's useful or not I can assure you it is!

I would like to see others contributing to the development effort. I haven't had time over the last few months to make any improvements, and there are some things that really annoy me ;) It would be nice to get the repeat command working correctly, and it would be great if the ? search worked. There are many issues like these that keep it from being rock solid -- it's usable now, but it could be much better.

I plan to use it and would like to help build it up. tell me how I can best be of use to you.

You can pick one of the "known issues" listed, or, just pick something that annoys you and fix it. Feel free to contact me with questions/suggestions.
