Please bring back the package bash-completion to the initial install

I spent awhile trying to figure out why systemctlspaceTab was not working on another new system.

When I installed my base system, bash-completion was installed, as verified by

===> grep -i bash-completion /rootfs-pkgs.txt
bash-completion 2.11-2

When did you install your system?

awk -F "[[ ]" 'NR==1 {print $2;}' /var/log/pacman.log

That will help me figure out when / why it was removed.

For XFCE edittion it could be this commit:

I don’t see it ever being in any of the other official editions by default.

That’s not it. In that commit, xfce/Packages-Root was removed in favor of using shared/Packages-Root.

Yes but that resulted in bash-completion being lost as it was included in the old xfce/Packages-Root but not in shared/Packages-Root.

Oh, you’re right. I’ve added it to xfce/Packages-Desktop:

I guess it wouldn’t hurt to add it to all ISO, even if some defaulted to ZSH, it is still BASH for the root user if I’m not wrong.

The base system was installed 2021-09-26, manjaro-xfce-21.1.3-210916-linux513. It had bash-completion.

The new system 2022-09-04, manjaro-xfce-21.3.7-220816-linux515. It does not have bash-completion.
