           Summary: Incorrect description of /usr/bin/vi symlink.
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 5.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P5
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: winkie at linuxfromscratch.org
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

The text describing the /usr/bin/vi -> vim symlink says "Vim can run in
old-fashioned vi mode by creating a symlink".  This is a flat-out lie.  Vim
doesn't care if it's called as vi or vim, it's backward compatibility is
determined _only_ by "set nocompatible" in /etc/vimrc.
