It's not clear how the icing2 packaging should be changed to use
dh-vim-addon and how that benefits the icinga2 packaging.

The packaging already installs the vim bits in

If I understand the gitgutter example correctly, those files should be
moved to somewhere under /usr/share/icinga2 and that path used in

The upstream packaging for packages.icinga.com is unlikely to use the
addon because it's not available for oldstable. Hence I'm hesitant to
adopt it in Debian and further diverge from upstream.

Kind Regards,
