HI I found this https://vimawesome.com/plugin/mercury-looking-forward

I did the vundle install and now I have what looks like a mercury source
dir in my ~/.vim/bundle dir what do I do is the idea that I run sudo
./INSTALL.git to install the latest mercury, a little bit more info in
the page on vimawesome would be good

Ok I trye to run sudo ./INSTALL.git

:~/.vim/bundle/mercury master* ± sudo ./INSTALL.git
