The newest 1.6.2 build of github-cli seems to have broken shell completion file instalation (there are no completion files in the package list, and the completion does not work)

Additional info:
* package version: 1.6.2

I noticed that as well; `make install` doesn't take care of the shell completion files (EDIT/ the previous version of the package, 1.5.0-1, _did_ ship them). Basically, I solved this by creating them in `package()` :

Any updates? Version 1.7.0 has been released, but this still isn't fixed...
