With chromium, typing in "vim.org" leads to an error page asking whether I meant "www.vim.org". Most pages, such as "debian.org", will redirect and add in the www.

    I just noticed this too.

    This is a 5 minute fix by anyone that can update the DNS entry for vim.org and add a CNAME or A record that points to www.vim.org (CNAME) or it's static IP address (A).
