If this is the path you are choosing, then take a look at "git
subtrees". With this someone can simply clone the "whole source" and
make changes anywhere (including completions), without even knowing
there is a separate completion repository. Alternately someone can clone
just the completions directory and only make change there.

One of the devs would have to periodically do a

    git subtree pull / push

to incorporate changes to/from the completion directory to the whole

I use git subtrees all the time and am constantly annoyed by the
fact that the zsh git completion doesn't know about subtrees on my
system. But maybe that will change shortly ... :)
