patch to changelog.vim to fix the bug
Description of problem: When trying to use the changelog.vim ftplugin, the following error is received when trying to insert a new changelog entry (\o):
Error detected while processing function <SNR>24_new_changelog_entry:
E121: Undefined variable: g:changelog_date_end_entry_search
E116: Invalid arguments for function search(g:changelog_date_end_entry_search, '
W') > 0
E15: Invalid expression: search(g:changelog_date_end_entry_search, 'W') > 0
E121: Undefined variable: p
E116: Invalid arguments for function append
E121: Undefined variable: p
E116: Invalid arguments for function cursor
This occurs due to a mis-spelled variable name in changelog.vim - it is a simple 1 line change to fix it - will provide a patch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a ChangeLog file in vim - changelog.vim ftplugin will be automatically loaded
2. Try inserting a new entry by typing \o in command mode
3. Above error occurs
Expected results: No error
Additional info: The attached patch for changelog.vim fixes the problem and has already been committed upstream - see debian changelog for the same fix:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
