Thanks for coming up with a patch!
Yeah, the contribution process has some initial road blocks;
I'll point them out below.

> completion: add missing completions for log, diff, show

I would think this is a good commit subject as it describes
the changes made superficially

> * Add bash completion for the missing --no-* options on git log
> * Add bash completion for --textconv and --indent-heuristic families to
>   git diff and all commands that use diff's options
> * Add bash completion for --no-abbrev-commit, --expand-tabs, and

This describes what happens in this patch, but not why, which helps
future readers of commit message more than the "what".
I'm also just guessing but maybe:

    A user might have configured a repo to show diffs in a certain way,
    add the --no-* options to the autocompletion to override it easier
    from the command line.
    New in this patch is autocompletion for --textconv as well as abbreviation
    options as that needs to be flipped all the time in <example workflow>.

I wonder if we really want to expose indent-heuristic,
I guess by not having it experimental any more it makes sense to do so.

The patch looks good, but doesn't apply because the email contains
white spaces instead of tabs. Maybe try https://submitgit.herokuapp.com/
(or fix/change your email client to send a patch; the gmail web interface
doesn't work. I personally got 'git send-email' up and running;
The Documentation/SubmittingPatches has a section on email clients, too)

Thanks,
Stefan
