redact\_pass.vim
================

This plugin switches off the `'viminfo'`, `'backup'`, `'writebackup'`,
`'swapfile'`, and `'undofile'` options globally when editing a password in
`pass(1)`.

This is to prevent anyone being able to extract passwords from your Vim cache
files in the event of a compromise.

You should test this after installation to ensure you see this message is
printed whenever you `pass edit`:

> Editing password file--disabled leaky options!
