Well, your repo seems to have the best completion collection I have
found so far. Also I like the approach you took by moving many
completions into a __fish_complete_* function, so that command aliases
can be used easily.
Lets unite our efforts on your repo. I'll send merge requests whenever
I updated any completions. Then you can send a merge request to the
main repo. Does your repo contain any other changes to fish besides
completions? It would be best to have a branch that contains only
completion changes.
If you don't want/have time to maintain the repo, I am willing to
clone (I already did) and do this work on it myself.
The goal would be to have a strong completions script base for easy
merging into mainstream.
