The package appears to be working as expected.

@iusrlinearb Note that you need sudo to run visudo if you are not root. Even if you don't have this package installed, you would still need to run sudo EDITOR=vim visudo.

Note that this doesn't appear to allow visudo to work (without sudo visudo):

$ ls -la /usr/bin/vi
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Sep  8 08:27 /usr/bin/vi -> vim
$ visudo
visudo: /etc/sudoers: Permission denied
$ sudo visudo
[editor window appears, quit without making changes]
visudo: /etc/sudoers.tmp unchanged
