Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/2] Support enabling bash completion of all options
Date: Wed, 19 Aug 2020 17:50:58 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200819175047.692962-1-rtzoeller@rtzoeller.com> (raw)

This series adds --git-completion-helper-all, which behaves similarly to
--git-completion-helper but includes options which are typically hidden.
An environment variable GIT_COMPLETION_SHOW_ALL is used to opt-in to
this behavior.

I often prototype automated tooling around git by running commands locally
until I'm satisfied with the behavior, then migrating them into a script.
Having bash completion for some of the more obscure options is useful.

I wasn't sure how to add automated tests around this without making the
tests overly brittle (e.g. depending on a verbatim list of options), so
I welcome ideas and feedback.
