Is this tracked somewhere? Is it ok for a provenpackager to step in and fix it across the
And in my opinion this is
something that maintainers should discuss with upstreams, and not
something that should be done only in Fedora, let alone be done by
In principle all fixes should be upstreamed, but this is a trivial
packaging change that can be easily and safely done just in
Fedora. Installed software genenerally does not care where its
bash-completion files installed, or even if they are installed at all.
Every file removed from /etc/bash_completion.d brings us closer to having
