tarsnap bash-completion

I’m currently trying out the Tarsnap backup solution (beta). Since it doesn’t come with a bash-completion of its own I’ve created one myself. I really can’t stand working with –long-options without proper completion.

For now I maintain it as a “junk branch” in Launchpad.


So far there is only the initial commit, hence it is most likely far from perfect. Feel free to point our errors and suggest improvements.

(Once I’ve used Tarsnap some more, I’ll probably put my experiences into a blog post of its own.)
