I am the maintainer of these RedHat VIM RPMS.  My plan is to keep them up to date with the latest and greatest version of vim.  Check back often, or whenever there is a new version of VIM.

Would you mind to put .nosrc.rpm or a .spec-file as well?

I do not know what you mean by ".nosrc.rpm", but the spec file is in the vim*src.rpm.

For each build (minimal, enhanced and X11), is there any way to know
the detailed version (i.e., output of "vim --verson") without actually
installing the RPMS?  If so, how?

Here is how to find out the version of vim contained in the RPM files.  
For example:
vim-common-6.1-261_1.i386.rpm is vim version 6.1.261.
