After several unsuccessful attempts of contacting Michael Sanders, no commits in last half year and long pull request line on github (none of pull requests were commented/replied/rejected) I decided to take action and step up and bring some love to this widly used plugin. But nothing to worry about. We all get busy, accupied with our daily work or just lose interest in doing boring maintainance. While reviewing pull requests on github.com/msanders I found lots of great improvements and I decided to **friendly** fork it, review and apply patches that were sent, notify all the patch submiters and decided to do maintainance of snipmate.vim from now on. Ofcourse if somebody want to help, please don't hesitate to write me, I'm open to all suggestions. The only thing in what I'm not interested is leaving things like they are now. Maybe I'll only maintain it for a while until Michael Sanders takes things back into his hand or until some other super-hero shows up. Tnx and happy snipmating, Rok Garbas, 2011-02-02
Updated README: added contributors, instructions how to install snipMate, some spellchecking of my wonderfull english, added this Changelog [2011-02-07, garbas]
From bellow mentioned merges I must spectialy mention MarcWeber patch which brought quite few functionalities/improvements:
- snippets are loaded lazily.
- snippets are no longer cached. Thus you always get the snippets you just wrote to a file without reloading anything.
- When visually selecting a snippet in a .snippets file you can press <cr> to replace spaces by tabs automatically in a smart way.

Unfortunatly there are many ways to how to install vim plugins. If you don't see you prefered way of installation plugins please consider adding updating this section.
- Important to note is that since version 1.0 we depend on this 2 vim plugins:
- % cd ~/.vim % mkdir bundle -p % git submodule add git://github.com/garbas/vim-snipmate.git bundle/snipmate
- % git clone git://github.com/msanders/snipmate.vim.git % cd snipmate.vim % cp -R * ~/.vim
Then in vim:
- Add documentation part on how to install with VAM [2011-02-07, garbas]
- Notify all "forkers" about new home and ask them nicely to review already merged changes and possibly send they changes. [2011-02-07, garbas]
- I'd like to investigate whether xptemplate or snipmate has the better engine. So maybe my vision of the future could be making xptemplate read snippet files. Its not imortant enough to me to work on it right now as snipmate works reasonable well for me. [2011-02-02, MarcWeber]
