Package: vim-runtime
Version: 2:7.3.429-2
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/vim/vim73/syntax/gitcommit.vim

When running "git commit" inside a submodule (e.g. editing
".git/modules/.random/COMMIT_EDITMSG) , the gitcommit syntax
doesn't get used automatically; instead, it uses the conf syntax. vim
should automatically detect this case and set the syntax to gitcommit.
