Stale Vim plugins at github.com/vim-scripts

Yegappan Lakshmanan
Hi all,

The plugins available at https://github.com/vim-scripts are not
updated for a long time now. This is supposed to mirror
the latest plugins from www.vim.org.  Is the maintainer of
https://github.com/vim-scripts still subscribed to this list?
If this is not a maintained repository, then it should be removed.

Thanks,
Yegappan

Yeah, it is not updated anymore:
https://github.com/vim-scraper/vim-scraper/issues/88#issuecomment-248132010

Vim-Plug has even removed support for automatic downloading of scripts
from their page:
https://github.com/junegunn/vim-plug/issues/625

I think, the vim-scripts page should mention, that the plugins are not
updated anymore (or even completely remove all repositories).

CC'ing one of the maintainers. Perhaps he can comment.

Best,
Christian

... should be removed, why?

Isn't it a good start for people who want to continue their script
by (eg) forking from this repo?

All the old upload history is there.

When someone searches for a Vim plugin in google, this
site shows up as one of the top hits. But the plugins hosted
in this repository are old and have bugs. The newer versions
are either available at www.vim.org or in other github
repositories. The readme page of each plugin doesn't point
this out.

In that case, the repository should be refreshed with new versions
of the plugins from the www.vim.org site.

Thanks,
