vim default font is bold (is this intended?)

Zugewiesen:nicht zugewiesen

I found out that the /etc/vim/vimrc.local is source by the /etc/vim/vimrc file. The vimrc.local has the option "set background=dark" which causes the font to be bold. It also forces bright font colors in vim. Since I don't use a dark terminal color schema I got problems reading.

So I wondered if this behavior is intended? Shouldn't the default config don't enforce things like color on the user?

It doesn't "enforce" anything on you. Just change your settings in your .vimrc.

It sets a setting that I have to disable/overwrite seperately in my .vimrc. I never set that option in any distribution, since it just used a suitable setting.

It changed my font colors and made everything bold. First I didn't know what caused this, then I tried to find a difference to Ubuntu (where it's not set). I searched many different files and then I disabled those settings.

I don't think that there should be such a setting for everyone, only if there's a sane reason, I don't quite see.
