######### REGISTRATION DETAILS ######### 

Full Name:
  vile, a vi-compatible text editor

System Group Name:

  non-GNU software & documentation

  GNU General Public License V2 or later

  this project is mature -- it is the vi-compatible text editor known as
"vile".  vile is GPL'ed, and included in current debian releases as "free".

what vile needs is better mailing list support.  our lists are low traffic
(announcements, the occasional bug report, the occasional user help request)
and a place to keep a placeholder web page.  these two things exist now,
hosted on a server in my basement, but the lists are based on ezmlm and are
very clunky, and i really can't see doing the upgrades necessary to turn them
into Mailman while still keeping them in my home.

as for the web page, the current web page lives at -- we
currently have the domain gratis, from the Christmas Islands, but
that could change any time.  and losing it would not be a big loss -- having
vile hosted on a well-known site such as would be much more

software development would probably continue to be done "off-site", though
that's not my call.  my current involvement in the project (though i'm the
original author) is more administrative.

the code currently lives (and will probably remain) here, if you want to see

Other Software Required:
  none.  vile runs on any vanilla linux or unix system.  (it also runs on
VMS, Win32, DOS, and probably others.)
