Shell (bash/zsh) completion for dzil

I created shell completion scripts for dzil. The completion that is shipped with Dist::Zilla only completes subcommands, and only is for bash, as far as I can see.
My scripts also complete options, and show the description of subcommands and options.
(If dzil commands change, I have to update this, too, of course.)
I created this with

# bash $ git clone $ cd shell-completions $ source bash/dzil.bash $ dzil <TAB> add -- add modules to an existing dist authordeps -- list your distributions author dependencies build -- build your dist clean -- clean up after build, test, or install commands -- list the applications commands help -- Show command help install -- install your dist listdeps -- print your distributions prerequisites new -- mint a new dist nop -- do nothing: initialize dzil, then exit release -- release your dist run -- run stuff in a dir where your dist is built setup -- set up a basic global config file smoke -- smoke your dist test -- test your dist $ dzil test --<TAB> --all -- enables the RELEASE_TESTING, AUTOMATED_TESTING, EX +TENDED_TESTING and AUTHOR_TESTING env variables --author -- enables the AUTHOR_TESTING env variable --automated -- enables the AUTOMATED_TESTING env variable (defaul +t behavior) --extended -- enables the EXTENDED_TESTING env variable --help -- Show command help --jobs -- number of parallel test jobs to run --keep-build-dir -- keep the build directory even after a success --keep -- keep the build directory even after a success --lib-inc -- additional @INC dirs --release -- enables the RELEASE_TESTING env variable --test-verbose -- enables verbose testing (TEST_VERBOSE env variable + on Makefile.PL, --verbose on Build.PL --verbose -- log additional output --verbose-plugin -- log additional output from some plugins only # zsh # put zsh/_dzil into a directory which is read by # zsh completions, or add this directory to your .zshrc: # fpath=("$HOME/path/to/shell-completions/zsh" $fpath) # log in again

    Very cool and useful, Tina, thanks!

    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
