I have always wondered how many people use the stock Janus/maximum-awesome Vim setups? How do people maintain their customizations? (the same questions actually apply to other configuration systems like dotfiles, etc.)

The reason I ask is that I've found these projects absolutely great in helping me learn more, discovering new plugins, and putting them all together in a (somewhat) maintenable way. But I've ended up with my own forks. And while I only tweak them every 6months or so, I usually have a hard time rediscovering the improvements that these systems have made in the meanwhile.

Yeah, catching up is always an issue, I've already stayed behind in my master branch, which is unfortunate.

I'm seeing myself eventually building a custom configuration from the ground up.
