Thats funny you write this bug report, because I was just looking into
this problem and how to solve it. I had already committed something to
the repository to fix it, but have determined that it wasn't the right
I think I'd prefer to have it activated by default, but that isn't
strictly required as we can ship it in /usr/share/puppet/syntax or
something and then telling the user to symlink that into $HOME/.vim in
README.Debian seems to be fine too.
The annoying thing for both vim and emacs highlighting/formatting is
that we have to pick which package that they get distributed in. Right
now they are distributed in the puppetmaster package, as the system that
will have this package installed will have your manifests, but I could
see arguments for having it in the puppet package too. Perhaps its an
argument for making a 'puppet-addons' package, but a third package seems
not a good solution either.
