Package: zsh
Version: 5.4.2-3
Severity: wishlist


Please make "apt install <tab>" completion work on local .deb
files. For example, given a "foo_1.0_amd64.deb" in the current

  $ sudo apt install ./f<TAB>

… should expand to:

  $ sudo apt install ./foo_1.0_amd64.deb

It probably wants to be limited to .deb files so it doesn't trigger
for the usual use-cases of installing packages from APT.

I did try adding this myself but my zsh completion fu is clearly
not up to the task, alas.. :(
