Do you use Vim? donate to Uganda



Independently of where you stand in the Vim versus Emacs infamous battle, it is hard to deny that Vim is an amazing text editor, but did you knew about Vim's peculiar license? Vim is charityware, with a GPL-compatible license. It's distributed freely, but they ask that if you find it useful you make a donation to help children in Uganda through the ICCF.



Bram Moolenaar, author and maintainer of Vim, helped establish a foundation called ICCF Holland that works to support a children's center in Uganda. He encourages users to consider making a donation to this foundation, which he serves as treasurer of and visits the site in Uganda nearly every year to monitor the center's progress.

You can become a registered user by sponsoring 10 euros or more, and you can vote for new features. Amazing.

Inside Vim try :help sponsor, and :help uganda, for more information.

Does the name of your blog ("the phrygian cap") imply any endorsement of secular freedom?

If so, please take into account that by fostering contributions to the Kibaale Children's Fund, you are promoting "Church and spiritual growth programs" under the control of "A Jr.K-12 university-preparatory Pentecostal Christian school in Surrey, B.C.".

"What will be the result of my sponsorship?
As you pray for your sponsored child and provide monthly support, you will be investing in your child's spiritual, educational and physical development. As a caring sponsor, your kindness will open the way for your child to respond to the love of Christ. Many of them will lead their entire family to Christ."

This may be a non-issue to many people, but agnostics and atheists alike deserve the full disclosure.

By the way, not a single girl to be seen on the benches of this school.

Emacs rules, definitely!

Plop,

You bring an interesting point I didn't knew about. Going to drop the link to Kibaale Children's Fund since I believe in secular freedom. Having that in mind I believe the ICFF Holland to be a better recepient to donations.

About the blog's name, from wikipedia:

"In the western provinces of the Roman Empire [the Phrygian cap] came to signify freedom and the pursuit of liberty, perhaps through a confusion with the pileus, the felt cap of manumitted (emancipated) slaves of ancient Rome. Accordingly, the Phrygian cap is sometimes called a liberty cap; in artistic representations it signifies freedom and the pursuit of liberty."
