Package: bash-completion
Version: 1:2.1-4.2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

vanilla testing installation, Root account enabled during installation. Root-account does not have bah-completion on parameters e.g. "apt-get dis[TAB]" is not completed to apt-get dist-upgrade. A user account created during installation does not lack the feature.
Is this a "bug" or a feature?
