Hi guys,

I run a couple of Arch servers, and I'm trying to teach someone how to go 
about maintaining it (for when I'm not around).  The difficulty is that when 
it comes to package updates that require merging .pacnew files, I always use 
Vim to merge changes.  That's quite a steep learning curve to impose on 
someone who's not all that familiar with a UNIX environment yet.  Does anyone 
know of any good & simple(ish) alternative for merging files over SSH?
