git-completion is a friendly fork of the official Git completion and
prompt scripts for zsh and bash.

The main goal is to provide a more up-to-date completion for zsh (I'm
the developer), which is basically just a wrapper around the bash

Compared to Git upstream, you get many benefits for zsh, but there's
also benefits for bash users too.

Since the last version, the tests for zsh have been simplified, the code has
been rebased on top of Git 2.40, and the internal structure of the project has
been completely revamped.

In total there are 51 patches [1] on top of git's master.

For installation instructions and more information: check the wiki [2],
but basically.

 * make install
 * fpath=(~/.local/share/git-completion/zsh $fpath)

And for Arch Linux users I've created an AUR package: [3].
