Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2014-10-25 08:11:02 UTC
We are removing some of the completions installed by bash-completion, and I'm thinking of extending that list. Here's some bug to collect ideas for what should be removed.

So far:

1. cal dmesg eject hd hexdump hwclock ionice look ncal renice rtcwake

Those were removed originally because they are included in util-linux now.

2. explodepkg installpkg makepkg pkgtool removepkg upgradepkg

Those are Slackware packaging tools. I doubt someone is using them on Gentoo and the names are generic enough to collide. For example, sys-apps/pacman installs makepkg (yes, we need to teach Arch not to use generic names as well).

3. ifdown ifup ifstatus

That's some fancy Debian/Red Hat stuff. I don't think they are useful for Gentoo.

4. arch (and possibly other mailman tools)

The bash-completion's 'arch' tool is for mailman arch and not coreutils arch, so it collides hard. Another thing is that our mailman tools are installed in /usr/lib*/mailman/bin and the completions rely on mailmanctl being in $PATH.

Nothing is happening here for a long time.
