comment xkb ɛ with acute accent

comment dot command in Vim, last change?
Change here many any command that changes the buffer's contents. Think of it as an edit. "j" doesn't change the contents. The "A" command finishes as soon as you press ESC. vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/change.html

Why do you think nfsstat -c isn't showing you the version in use?
