Description Thomas Capricelli 2017-05-07 22:15:52 UTC
Once app-editors/vis-0.3 is installed, I can't see it with eselect : 

% eselect vi list
Available vi implementations:
  [1]   vim *
  [2]   nvim
  [3]   busybox

Not a problem of eselect proper, but of the vi module. Reassigning to its maintainer (namely, vim project).

Available vi implementations:
  [1]   vim
  [2]   busybox

$ eselect vi show
Current vi implementation:

patch to add vis to eselect-vi

This works, although you need to unmask ~amd64 because only eselect-vi-1.1.9-r1 is EAPI>5.
