Bash Completion Team

Proposal: ''New Directory Layout''

General Information

Rationale

Bash-Completion is currently installed into different paths for each single GNU/Linux distribution. This way, it's not easy for maintainers to "interface" with other distributions' people, so a proposal has been raised to improve the directory layout of Bash-Completion scripts.

Current status

  • Debian / Ubuntu
    • /etc/bash_completion
    • /etc/bash_completion.d/
  • Fedora / Red Hat
  • Gentoo
  • Mandriva
    • /etc/bash_completion
    • /etc/bash_completion.d/
    • /etc/profile.d/*bash_completion.sh
    • /etc/sysconfig/bash-completion
    • ~/.bash_completion
