Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2014-08-26 18:21:32 UTC
# Backwards compatibility for compat completions that use have().
# @deprecated should no longer be used; generally not needed with dynamically
#             loaded completions, and _have is suitable for runtime use.

To be more specific, it is unset after loading 'compat' completions. Therefore, completions using it can't be dynamically loaded with new bash-completion because there is no 'have' function at dynamic loading time.

As far as I understand, upstream suggests not using 'have' at all, and just letting completions load.

IIRC this was fixed in git and in gentoo-bashcomp-20130804 (removed from the tree).
