Title:
  Vim should follow XDG Base Directory Specifications to store its
  config files

Status in “vim” package in Ubuntu:
  Opinion

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: vim

  There is a huge need to have a separation between user-data and
  user-preferences. For example, when I back up my configuration files - I should be targetting .vimrc and .vim config files, but not my .viminfo files.

  This will also have the added advantage of a less cluttered home
  directory.
