Vim the editorIf you use svn or svk and would like to use the GUI version of Vim to edit your commit messages then add the following in your .profile, SVN_EDITOR="$EDITOR --nofork"; export SVN_EDITOR. This of course assumes that you already have have $EDITOR set to some value such as /usr/bin/gvim. If you use a csh style shell then modify to suite.
