Package: vim

Severity: serious
Tags: experimental

please test your packages before publishing them.

:syn on gives me for example the following:

Error detected while processing /usr/share/vim/vim64/syntax/syntax.vim:
line   42:
E216: No such group or event: filetypedetect BufRead

travelmate:~# dpkg --get-selections \* | grep vim
vim                                             install
vim-common                                      install
vim-full                                        install
vim-gtk                                         install
vim-gui-common                                  install
vim-runtime                                     install

It doesn't work for vim.full nor vim.basic.
