I don't think /etc/bash_completion.d is the correct place as you allege without any citation. For starters the bash package doesn't own this directory. Second, it's a RH/Fedora-ism - IIRC it's not available on Debian etc. etc.
/etc/bash_completion.d is the correct place as all the other bash completion rules are stored there. They do not belong into the generic profile as they pollute the environment.
I agree that ownership of this dir is broken; 'Requires: bash-completion' is far too heavyweight. Hence, either keep it unowned, or follow git, bzr, PackageKit, ... and own it.
It is not a Fedora/RH-ism but used in Ubuntu, Debian and SuSE also.
See bug #456355 for comments about dir ownership.
I'm still not convinced me that /etc/bash_completion.d is the right place for this. And in the future upstream might want to put completion functions for other shells in that file. WONTFIX.
/etc/bash_completion.d *IS* the right place for bash completion rules. Argument about other shells is bogus as the file ends with '.sh' and will be loaded by 'sh' like shells only. 'complete' is defined for 'bash' only, so it is a bash issue.
The "upstream" part in this context is probably a bad joke as you are the upstream maintainer afais.
Thank you for your opinion.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
