Description Chris Rebert 2005-01-09 21:01:05 UTC
When someone emerges vi(m) or one of its cousins, a message should be displayed informing the user of the user guide available from the Gentoo Doc Project and its URL [Learning vi -- the "cheatsheet" technique (].
These additions would help new users figure out how to use vi-like editors on their own. This would reduce the number of repetitive questions about using vi et al asked on the forums and irc.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Hrmmmmm. With vim at least, vimtutor is a heck of a lot better than that guide...
Comment 2 Chris Rebert 2005-01-09 21:44:37 UTC
okay then, mention either the guide or vimtutor, or both, depending on what vi-like editor is being emerged.
Comment 3 Ciaran McCreesh 2005-01-21 09:25:49 UTC
Closing this as WONT, since some of that guide is vim-specific and vim has a far better tutorial shipped with it.
