Indenting Python with VIM is a nice read for those wanting to make their VIM options saner for Python editing. I followed it until the section Sexy edition and it worked nicely for Mandriva. I got a little stuck when I did it for Centos. Apparently, ftplugin is not activated and activating it in a running VIM session with
:filetype plugin indent on
doesn’t work. It must be enabled by editing
~/.vimrc and appending
filetype plugin indent on
to it. After which, the modifications worked as expected.
