Let's ping it publicly:

  Hei Nobse, could you please add Franz (username fp-guest on alioth) to
  the pkg-vim group on alioth so that it can work on vim-latexsuite
  directly on svn?

Uhm, there's a small problem with your .diff: it touches two files which
are outside the debian/ dir.

Since on svn (following the good practice of many other collaborative
maintenance alioth projects) we only keep the debian/ dir and not the
upstream sources, this is a problem. If you need to modify stuff outside
debian/ you should use some patch management system so that the patches
themselves reside under debian/ and they are applied/unapplied with
target in debian/rules.  For vim itself we use quilt, but it's
definitely overkilling for vim-latexsuite. I suggest you to go for
dpatch, which is well integrated with svn-buildpackage too.

Can you please change your .diff so that no files outside debian/ are
modified by it?  Then I will be happy to commit it on svn for you or,
better, you can do it by yourself as soon as you get added to the
pkg-vim project.

Ok, so I can stop spamming you with double mails :-)
