I feel slightly embarrassed asking about this but the unofficial mirror of the Scala plugin that I created a few years back seems to have been discovered by more Scala users and as a result has had a few fixes (nothing major) added to it.

I can't claim any credit what so ever for them but it would be good to have these fixes included; so what are folks' thoughts on changing the submodule?

PS I'm surprised Scala is supported at all in Janus, it seems a bit of an outlier and other languages that have more comprehensive support such as Erlang ( are not included.

+1 for updated fixes. I'm an active user of scala with janus.


@rosstimson Why didn't you fork the original repository and sent pull request back upstream ?


@eMxyzptlk I couldn't find that repo at the time, not sure if it existed. I haven't made any changes myself I just mirrored it so I could easily add as a submodule into my old vimfiles, if I had been making changes and if I'd found this repo at the time I would have just forked.

I think my main reason for asking for thoughts on changing the submodule rather than sending pull requests and eventually deleting my repo is that my repo has more watchers / forks from Scala users; I just figured deleting mine would upset more people and possibly lose users who have / are contributing to it.

Ok well In that case, I'll change the default repo to be yours at the end of the day, or you could also submit a pull request :)
