Bug#4594: VIM: no help, no conffiles

Package: vim
Version: 4.4-1

/usr/doc/vim/vim_tips.txt.gz explains how to make vim function with
compressed helpfiles (which are gzipped as per the guidelines)
in the section "Compressing the help files".
However, this vim package doesn't use this tip:
When the .vimrc has no "version 4" in it, vim suggests to do
	:help version
which unfortunately results in
	No tags file
	Sorry, no help for version

Also, /usr/doc/vim/changelog.debian.gz says:
  * redirected global vimrc/gvimrc to /etc
but the package doesn't include these files at all. It should include
at least empty versions of them, as conffiles.

I'd be interested to hear from him. There are so many pseudos around taking 
his name in vain.
