Right now, Vim, Emacs, Kate, and gedit configuration lives in /src/etc/. Not only is this tricky to find if you didn’t know where to look, it’s pretty user-unfriendly to somebody who doesn’t want to have to check out the whole rust git repository – even with a shallow clone, it’s pretty big.
I think each editor ought to live in its own repository.
Support on IRC seemed strong: Apparently some people use tools to manage their editor configurations, and while I’m unfamiliar with them, they claim the editor-per-repo setup would be much more convenient.
An alternative is all the editors, and maybe zsh/bash completions, in a rust-lang/extras repository.
