get crazy.
-If you're one of those OCD types that insists pathogen.vim live in
-`~/.vim/bundle` like every other plugin, you can do that if you add an
-extra line to your vimrc:
- source ~/.vim/bundle/vim-pathogen/autoload/pathogen.vim
Finally, pathogen.vim has a rich API that can manipulate `'runtimepath'`
and other comma-delimited path options in ways most people will never
need to do. If you're one of those edge cases, look at the source.
It's well documented.
+> Can I put pathogen.vim in a submodule like all my other plugins?
+Sure, stick it under `~/.vim/bundle`, and prepend the following to your
+ source ~/.vim/bundle/vim-pathogen/autoload/pathogen.vim
+> Will you accept these 14 pull requests adding a `.gitignore` for

+No, but I'll teach you how to ignore `tags` globally:
+ git config --global core.excludesfile '~/.cvsignore'
+ echo tags >> ~/.cvsignore
+While any filename will work, I've chosen to follow the ancient
+tradition of `.cvsignore` because utilities like rsync use it, too.
+Clever, huh?
