Bug Description

Binary package hint: bash-completion

In connection with the slimming down of shipped changelog files, new functionality was added to apt version 0.8.9ubuntu2:

  apt-get changelog apt | grep 'apt-get changelog'

Tab-completion support is missing for "apt-get changelog" and "apt-get download"

Marking Confirmed, this definitely is still missing and would be a nice to have.

It seems that apt-get changelog is fixed as of 1 April 2011 (1:1.3-1ubuntu2), but apt-get download is still missing. The patch adds the "download" option to the `apt-get` completion.

description: updated
summary: - Enable auto-completion for "apt-get changelog ..."
+ Enable auto-completion for "apt-get changelog" and "apt-get download"

Lekensteyn, in the future, rather than adding more conditions and your patch to this bug report, please open a new bug report with your patch attached, it can be a little confusing that the bug report morphed into something it wasn't.

That said, the patch looks good and works, so I've uploaded it to oneiric. Thanks!

@Clint: there was a mention of "apt-get download" in the footer of the description, so I've adjusted the whole report. I'd like to minimize the total number of bugs.

Thank you very much Lekensteyn for doing the patch (for apt-get download even too) and for Clint for catching and uploading it!
