It would be nice if the vim-runtime package could provide a pacman hook to replace the multitude of install files for vim plugins which come with documentation.

Attached is a patch for the vim base package to add the hook.
I have been using this hook for months now without any problems.

Note: Contrary to current vimdoc.install styles, my use of silent-ex mode means you don't have to worry about redirecting output and incurring the startup cost of a bash shell (since hooks, unlike install files, don't automatically get one!), also, testing with --startuptime reveals there is no actual need to disable plugins.


A list of packages in the main repos which have documentation and can therefore lose their install files if this hook is added (plus a multitude of AUR packages):
