I need further discussion and preferrably a patch.  Since I don't use
bash, I don't know anything about how its completion mechanism works and
reading the man page makes me none the wiser.

I'm not an expert on bash-completion either, but here are my thoughts on what's in .bashrc now. Someone who knows more should comment further.

# Uncomment to turn on programmable completion enhancements.
# Any completions you add in ~/.bash_completion are sourced last.
# [[ -f /etc/bash_completion ]] && . /etc/bash_completion

This is obsolete because (a) /etc/bash_completion has been replaced by /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion and (b) the latter is already sourced by /etc/profile.d/


This is probably OK.


This is probably OK.


I don't think this will have any effect unless it's set *before* /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion is sourced; so it doesn't belong in .bashrc now that /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion is sourced by /etc/profile.d/
