Background: I'm an english-speaking, francophone student. In an effort to improve my vocabulary, my MacBook has been running in French since January, when I arrived in France. Incidentally, this means that
$LANG=fr_FR.utf-8. I was able to get ahold of the spell files.
I decided it would be nice if I had access to vim help in french.
:help help-translated points to the translations page, which points us to this website.
Unfortunately, Safari reports it "can't find the server."
A quick google search didn't turn up anything useful either.
I did find this translation from 2017, but it appears to be the error messages only and is not a drop-in bundle of help files per
:help itself--it appears it may have to be compiled in?
Question: Where are the vim help files in French? Do they still exist? If not, will someone get them back online so I can use them? (I would gladly put them in a GitHub repo somewhere so they persist for eternity).
Here is the relevant post on the
vim_dev mailing list.
vimtutor fr works just fine.
