description
This script integrates using the IBM Configuration Management Version Control (CMVC) application from within Vim.  It provides keyboard shortcuts as well as a menu to access common functions such as checking files in and out, viewing and responding to defects, etc.

Currently, only the functions I use regularly (Defect, File, Track, and VerifyCm) are implemented.  If you want to add others, the API should be fairly straightforward to do so.  Of course, I would appreciate receiving any changes you make, so that I can incorporate it into the next version (and avoid duplicating the work myself).

NOTE:  This script currently requires Vim 6.  If there is interest in making it 5.x compatible, let me know and I will see what I can do.

TODO:     Here are some other things I want to add when I get around to it:
    - Implement more functions, like Report, to get a list of available defects / files / etc., which you can then view or
checkout.
    - Make the script more "plugin-ized", like allowing users to override the default mappings and use their own.
    - Keep a history of releases, components, and families used, then present them in a "confirm" dialog so the user
can just pick one instead of retyping it.  Inlcude an "other" button to bring up an "inputdialog" so the user can still
enter an unlisted / new value.
    - Add commands to let the functions be used in Command mode.
 
install details
Just drop this file into your plugin directory, and it will automatically be loaded when you start Vim.  Otherwise, just put it in a directory of your choice and :source it as needed.  The syntax file should go into your syntax directory.
