[Bash-completion-devel] Bug#647684: bash-completion: incorrect completion for dpkg --purge

Package: bash-completion
Severity: minor
Version: 1:1.3-3


The completion of dpkg --purge doesn't seem to include non-purged but removed 
packages. E.g.

$ dpkg -l | grep libv8 [redacted]
rc  libv8-
ii  libv8-
$ dpkg --purge libv8\t[auto completed: -]

Package libv8- should also be available as a possible completion.
