For each proposed new tip:
- Is it worth keeping as a separate tip?
- Should it be merged into an existing tip? Which?
- If it should be kept, is it ready for release? Which points need fixing? Should it be renamed?
Please edit this page (not the talk page) in the appropriate section below the following table.

General comments (not for a specific tip)Edit
Since these pages have existed for a long time, we shold not delete any of the titles except if we decide to delete the tip. Some of the titles need to be fixed or perhaps the tip needs to be merged, but we would keep the old title as a redirect. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Keep: Interesting and has explanation. I haven't tried it but looks like good to release without change. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Investigate related tips below. The info is in 135 but it is lost there.

- No idea what to do with this as the title is totally misleading, but I can't think of a better one. I do not use Cygwin but would speculate that reading the docs would be more useful. What is "setup.exe"? Perhaps merge with something in Category:Cygwin? JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Is this useful? What does it do? Folding has basic info. I suppose the tip could be kept as-is since anything useful about folding for diff files can be added here in the future. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Probably keep as-is although a little more explanation would be useful (isn't this more an emulation of help tags?). The "The problem" section has links to the two related tips. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Keep as is, although the "see also" link might be improved because it seems to land in the middle of a thread where not much is shown. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Delete? As the comments hint, a lot of the problems seem just the normal hassle that people have. Something went wrong, no one knows why, but the explanations are missing something. At any rate, it is too specific a problem that is unlikely to be used much. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- Keep because I don't think we have a tip mentioning
'report'. The title is useless because a person needing this would have no idea to search for "set report=0". The tip needs considerable work, but it is a start. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- I'm not quite understanding this. It seems to be for people who have Vim installed in different things, but where each thing is able to always access the one set of files. The tip stops before it says anything useful, but I can't find any other tip that has an explanation of
exists()so could be persuaded to keep this. How about rename to "Using a single set of configuration files" and hope it gets fixed in the future? JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- It's cute enough to keep and my comment about the "mosh" names is no longer applicable. Normally I wouldn't like all that script for what is essentially not a Vim issue, but maybe keep? JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)

- I kind of understand the idea, but why have two files if they are always identical? Caution would prevent me from using this tip as I wouldn't want a blunder to wipe out both files, and I'd like to do
:updatea few times when in a long editing session without writing to both files. What to do? JohnBeckett (talk) 09:27, February 1, 2014 (UTC)
