vim-addon-manager (0.5.0) unstable; urgency=low
* Addons now can now use a new layout: instead of having its files symlinked
into the target dir, they can install all their files into a single
directory that will be installed in the target dir and added to the vim
runtimepath. This feature is not complete yet, and will be finished with
the next release.
* New maintainer = myself.
* Turn vim-addon-manager into a proper Ruby package. This should have no
impact on end users, though. The source layout was changed to:
+ library code in lib/
+ main program in bin/
+ src/Makefile moved to doc/Makefile; debian/rules and the Makefile itself
changed accordingly.
* Migrate to gem2deb. This adds support for having Ruby 1.9 as /usr/bin/ruby
(Closes: #655245)
* Bumped Standards-Version to 3.9.2. No changes needed.
* Avoid installing manpage sources into /usr/share/doc. Only install
doc/*.txt instead.

vim-addon-manager (0.4.4) unstable; urgency=low
* Correct a check when removing an addon to avoid getting into a loop when
the target directory is a symlink.  (Closes: #634379)
2010-01-21 - James Vega <>
vim-addon-manager (0.4.3) unstable; urgency=low
* Don't try to remove “/path/to/addons/.”.  (Closes: #566186)
* Do not regenerate the helptags after removing the last
documentation-providing addon.  Simply remove the docs directory instead.

vim-addon-manager (0.4.2) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control:
- Add myself as an uploader
- Update Vcs-* fields to point to git
- Remove vim-tiny from Recommends since it's lacking +eval which most
addons need.
* Rename amend sub-command to enable.  Leave amend as an undocumented
command for a little while for people that are used to the old name.
(Closes: #501439)
* Remove empty directories left behind when removing addons.
* Include the target directory in the install/remove informational messages.
(Closes: #499563)
* Fix a spelling error in vim-addons(1).
* Add a man page describing the registry file format.  (Closes: #457040)
2009-07-21 - Debian Vim Maintainers <>
vim-addon-manager (0.4.1) unstable; urgency=low
* bump Standards-Version, no changes needed
* set "Debian Vim Maintainers" as Maintainer, no Uploaders for the
moment. So long.

vim-addon-manager (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
* vim-addons manpage: fix typo, s/linst/list/ (closes: #446527)

* use "status" as the default command when none is given
* fix the license header of the vim-addons main executable to GPL v3
