I'm not really into having contributions blocked contingent on me
learning zsh.


It's nice that you're personally motivated to update zsh completions,
but it would mean more to me if you had the same care and concern for
the rotting bash completions, which is what *I* care about, since bash
is the shell I know and use. (That, however, is not a current priority
for me, so it goes onto the endless TODO list.)

This shows me that you're asking for zsh completions because you're
enthusiastic about zsh on a personal level, not because there's a
fundamental goal that the project needs to have up to date completions. :(

In the meantime, spoonfeeding me the actual diff you want for this file
and asking me to submit it with my name slapped on as the author feels
sort of silly to me. Nevertheless, if you tell me what the range diff
should be for "Please add the new option to zsh_completions.in", I will
be happy to combine that with replacing the "1" character with a "*" as
advised above, and submit a third patch that updates the completions for
your shell of choice (but no others).

Tell me exactly what to do and I'll do it. :)


All I can imagine now is submitting a feature to a project and being
told "sorry, we won't accept this unless you also submit updated gettext
translations for this list of 30 languages".

This is why projects usually have dedicated stakeholders to maintain
select integration features that aren't the core project and ensure they
are kept up to date with the rest of the codebase.

And those stakeholders do their work after features are merged, and if
they don't show up to do the work, the project can still be updated and
