Yes, I can include this.  But first a few remarks.

The filetype is "debsources", therefore all the items in the syntax file
should start with that, not "sources".  To keep it consistent.

The use of HiLink for backwards compatibility with Vim 5.x isn't all
that relevant now.  You can use "hi def link" to keep it simple.  I have
done that for the C syntax file as well.

It appears you hardly use the '-' in a keyword though.  You could also
use a match to avoid changing 'iskeyword' from what a user expects.

Aren't there ANY other files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory?
