Saw the HN post about this new repo: GitHub - neovim/neovim: Vim-fork focused on extensibility and usability
Does a project like this have any legs? I knew from a cursory skimming of the Vim email list in the past that Bram was mostly responsible for Vim’s development, but didn’t realize that he is the only person maintaining the project (by which I mean he has the commit access and is the sole gatekeeper). Doesn’t this create a terrible “bus factor” for the folks (like me) who depend on Vim for development every day?
I realize some of this might sound super alarmist since we could probably all survive just fine on Vim 7.4 for the rest of our development careers, but I was curious the opinion of some folks with more Vim history than I have.
