Bug Description

Binary package hint: vim

For Debian package control files there is no "Breaks" support.

I'm attaching this as a patch, I can't figure out how to get this upstream. :(

The latest version upstream (as of today) of file runtime/syntax/depcontrol.vim
which I downloaded with...

 rsync -avzcP --delete --exclude="dos" --exclude="spell" .

... does does not contain the Breaks keyword indeed.

Looking at
I see that the "Tag" keyword may also be missing.

File runtime/syntax/depcontrol.vim contains the email of its maintainer at the
top (I'm not going to repeat the email here).

-> Can you email your patch to its maintainer? It's best to CC the vim_use mailing list too:

I see that the last update in the official file is "2009 July 14" so
this file is actively maintained.

Done. I'm not sure about Tags I didn't play with that one. :) Though,
I'm guessing others would use that control field.

I've included this patch in my merge (see bug #509900) which waits on sponsoring.

It's correct to leave out Tags, I feel - it shouldn't normally be set in the package itself, but (in Debian) is handled by a separate debtags system and archive overrides.

This bug was fixed in the package vim - 2:7.2.330-1ubuntu1

vim (2:7.2.330-1ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Michael Bienia ]
  * Merge with Debian unstable (LP: #509900):
    - Highlight Breaks in debian/control (LP: #498303).
    - [7.2.257] GTK 2.17: lots of assertion error messages (LP: #402188).
  * Remaining changes:
    - debian/runtime/vimrc: "syntax on" is a sane default for non-tiny vim.
    - runtime/syntax/debcontrol.vim:
      + Add "metapackages" to the list of valid sections.
    - runtime/syntax/grub.vim:
      + Add Ubuntu-specific 'quiet' keyword.
    - Drop vim-lesstif package and lesstif2-dev build-dependency.
    - Enable Python interpreter on basic builds.
    - Rename Vcs-* to XS-Debian-Vcs-*.
  * runtime/ftplugin/debchangelog.vim: Use python-launchpadlib (and LP API)
    instead of python-launchpad-bugs for bug completion for Ubuntu
    (forwarded to Debian as bug #566841).
  * src/, src/auto/configure:
    As MODLIBS from python's config/Makefile includes LOCALMODLIBS which
    shouldn't be used and breaks the build with newer python versions, use
    BASEMODLIBS instead of MODLIBS (forwarded to Debian as bug #566842;
    LP: #534251).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add Launchpad integration to the Help menu if launchpad-integration is
    installed (LP: #453103).
