Steps to Reproduce:

There are no vi or vim packages. vim-minimal or vim-enhanced should be installed. If there are no /bin/vi and /bin/vim files - it's a known problem which happens randomly during the iso image build. We cannot fix this at the moment, just try another image. We also plan to add this check into autotests.
Comment 2 Denis Silakov 2015-06-06 22:54:38 MSD
To be pedantic, I don't think that "wontfix" is a correct resolution:) This would mean that we are not going to include vim in default image. However, all ROSA images have vim packages installed by default (for a long time we had "vim-minimal", not long ago we decided to switch to "vim-enhanced").

And as Konstantin mentioned, if some image doesn't have the "/bin/vim" executable, then this is a sporadic bug of particular image caused by incorrect package installation order during image preparation (since this order can vary in different images). Release images should be free of this problem.
Comment 3 Konstantin Vlasov 2015-06-07 01:44:08 MSD
BTW, the vi/vim autotests were finally added, so autotested images from now on should be fine in this respect.
