Plugins

Pathogen.vim

https://github.com/tpope/vim-pathogen

Pathogen is a simple library for manipulating comma delimited path options. Add this to your vimrc:

call pathogen#runtime_append_all_bundles()

After adding this, you can take any plugin, unzip/untar/svn-checkout/git-clone it to its own private directory in .vim/bundle, and it will be added to the runtime path.  This makes it easy to remove or update each plugin individually.

Add vim scripts to submodules

git submodule add git://github.com/nelstrom/vim-blackboard.git vim/bundle/vim-blackboard
git submodule init
git submodule update
