TODO and FIXME List in VIM

Programmers like to leave "TODO" or "FIXME" in comments to remind themselves that there's something unfinished or unsolved. It's not only important for reminding, but also a good way to tell notify the other co-workers: "there's something we need to fix", which is a better way instead of email/IMs.

To setup the "TODO" and "FIXME" list in VIM is slightly simple, just add the following line in ~/.vimrc:
command Todo noautocmd vimgrep /TODO\|FIXME/j ** | cw
Type ":Todo" in VIM to obtain the list in VIM.
