[Pkg-puppet-devel] Bug#683834: vim-puppet: puppet is "unavailable" in vim-addons (missing source files)

Package: vim-puppet
Version: 2.7.18-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

vim-addons cannot "install" (enable) the puppet syntax highlighting because it
references a missing "indent/puppet.vim" file.

% vim-addons install puppet 
Warning: ignoring 'puppet' which is missing source files

% vim-addons show puppet
Addon: puppet
Status: unavailable
Description: Syntax highlighting for puppet
 - syntax/puppet.vim
 - ftdetect/puppet.vim
 - indent/puppet.vim

% dpkg -S indent/puppet.vim
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *indent/puppet.vim*.

Symlinking the syntax and ftdetect files to the user homedir works around the

% ln -s /usr/share/vim/addons/ftdetect/puppet.vim ~/.vim/ftdetect
% ln -s /usr/share/vim/addons/syntax/puppet.vim ~/.vim/syntax

PS: I flagged this as "important" as it breaks the documented
(README.Debian) way to install the feature but feel free to adjust it,
