Of course you come up on top, because the guy isn't even testing git's

He says you can install the bash-completion package to get the
completions, but he is wrong; git completions work without
bash-completion, and many distributions ship them that way so users
get them automatically when installing git.



* no cycling through options with repeated tabs?
* breaks to new prompt line on each tab instead of updating in-place?

bind '"\t":menu-complete'

Also, he has no idea of git's zsh completion:


So of course he didn't do a fair comparison; he compared no completion
to zsh-zsh's completion. And then git-bash's completion, but never
compared git-zsh's completion.
