completion: add tests showing subpar -c/C argument completion
When using the branch creation argument for git switch or git checkout (-c/-C or -b/-B), the commands switch to a different mode: `git switch -c <branch> <some-referance>` means to create a branch named <branch> at the commit referred to by <some-reference>. When completing git switch or git checkout, it makes sense to complete the branch name differently from the start point. When completing a branch, one might consider that we do not have anything worth completing. After all, a new branch must have an entirely new name. Consider, however, that if a user names branches using some similar scheme, they might wish to name a new branch by modifying the name of an existing branch. To avoid overloading completion for the argument, it seems reasonable to complete only the local branch names and the valid "Do What I Mean" remote branch names. Add tests for the completion of the argument to -c/-C and -b/-B, highlighting this preferred completion behavior. Signed-off-by: Jacob Keller <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
