And to respond to this explicitly, no, this is false. I care a out the integrity
of the specific parts and not to purely suite the variant I by accident use
as well. Fixing bash completions is still on my list as well and once it's
up to date it should also be aimed to fix up on changes. The truth is as
simple as bash completions being a total mess (at least the one we have
in the repo) compared to the zsh completion we have there so within the
time frame I prioritized bringing the zsh variant back to shape was way
easier even through I have way less zsh specific knowledge compared to
having bash related knowledge.
Once bash is in tact as well I have the very exact same feelings about its
integrity as I do right now for zsh, purely to sustain integrity in the
projects components itself from a maintainer view rather than *any*
personal choice or preference, because my personal preference doesn't
matter when having the maintainer hat on.
