Since the upstream doesn't like zimfw getting packaged for global installation, and porting seems to be harder with the latest template changes, I'm going to stop maintaining this package. Contributions are still welcome.

@Brottweiler Thanks for that. I can see from your comments on the Github issue that you are using a manual user-level install… I guess that's the only answer (and also fixes my other question). It's a pity we won't have automatic updates, though.

@ishitatsuyuki However, /etc/zsh/zshrc will still run before ~/.zshrc, so although the ~/.zshrc will run later (and have "higher priority"), the shell still will run both versions… and somehow unload the modules defined in /etc/zsh/zshrc. I guess I could modify /etc/zsh/zshrc (which is in the backup array) to point to an alternative instead of /usr/lib/zim/templates/zimrc, but then this would miss any updates. Having said that, @Brottweiler's comments make me think that the idea of a system-wide install is not workable anyway.

@Rhinoceros: The expected way is to copy that to .zimrc (others work too), and modify it. Then it has higher priority than installed one.

@Rhinoceros, Please read this

When I install, I get
/usr/lib/zim/templates/zlogin:22: no matches found: /root/.zcomp^(*.zwc)(.)

Also, this package makes zsh source `/usr/lib/zim/templates/zimrc` by default, which is where the modules are enabled. I wonder if you could include this file in the backups array. Then users could modify this, and it won't be over-written on updates.
