Not sure if this is related but the completion doesn't resolve .snap files.


$ snap install <tab>

doesn't list the .snap files in the current directory

I just came across the same problem that a manually built snap file was not being auto-completed in my attempt to install it with `snap install`.

I opened this bug for autocompletion of the commands, which is working now.
