Description Chris Cheney 2018-04-03 22:11:57 UTC
Description of problem:

Vim was rebased in RHEL 6.7 (Jul 2015) from vim 7.2.411 to 7.4.629 while Vim in RHEL 7.5 is still at 7.4.160. This leads to missing functionality and bug fixes in the newer version of RHEL such as breakindent. Vim in RHEL 7 should be rebased to at least match the version in RHEL 6.
