Description Jan Hutař 2008-03-19 10:42:15 EDT
Description of problem: While inspecting yum man-page, I have found that some options are missing. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): yum-3.2.8-8.el5.noarch How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. man yum Actual results: grouperase not documented in the yum man-page -t, --tolerant not documented in the yum man-page --disableplugin not documented in the yum man-page -x only long variant ('--exclude') mentioned in the yum man-page Expected results: These options are documented Additional info: This is severity/priority lower then low
Comment 1 James Antill 2008-03-19 12:27:39 EDT
note that --tolerant does nothing, so I'm not 100% sure what to do about that atm. The others are easy-ish additions.

(In reply to comment #1) > note that --tolerant does nothing, > so I'm not 100% sure what to do about that atm. I would just add a note about it to the man-page. It is better to say "this is not implemented jet" or "this is here only for backwards compatibility now", then nothing. Thanks for a quick response!

Hello, "grouperase" is still not included (only "groupremove" is), but I do not know what is the policy here and it is definitely not important. What do you think? Thank you in advance, Jan
Comment 7 James Antill 2008-04-02 11:41:02 EDT
Well grouperase is just an alias for groupremove, on the latest upstream if you do: # yum help grouperase groupremove GROUP... Remove the packages in a group from your system alias: grouperase ...so I'd say not a bug?:) ... the obvious counter is groupinstall and groupupdate, but we might make those different one day. I'd prefer to just ignore this, at least for 5.2 ... but if it's a regression the fix is pretty small.
Comment 8 James Antill 2008-04-02 11:57:06 EDT
The regression comment was because I was thinking about the "yum -d" vs. "yum -R" problem ... just commenting on too much at once :). So anyway, unless you object, I'd rather just drop it as "it's not a real command it's an alias" excuse.
Comment 9 Jan Hutař 2008-04-02 14:16:10 EDT
That is perfectly OK to me. Thank you.
