      This is my first post and my first time creating vim syntax files, so please feel free to correct my approach to either.

      My employer makes proprietary backup software which runs on Linux, Unix, and Windows. I've created syntax files which make reading our config and log files easier. Is it allowed/appropriate to include these in Vim? If not, I can distribute the files directly to our customers, but my preference is to have them included in Vim.

      The syntax files are attached. I have questions about filetype.vim and synmenu.vim, so I'll post them inline.


      I've included some wildcarded filenames because customers will often rename a log file to include the computer name or other identifier. I put them in separate au statements to make their removal easier if they are found to cause conflicts in the future (particularly with our use of the word "upstream" in our product line). Is this approach acceptable?

      I see that there are several augroups in filetype.vim. I don't understand the purpose of the groups, so I'm not sure if I put my changes in the proper group.

      I've added five lines to this file. I did not renumber the lines to keep the "number by 10" convention. Is that something I should do or do the developers handle that before a release?

      Thanks for your input, and thanks for the awesome piece of software.
