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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man yum

Actual results:
  not documented in the yum man-page
-t, --tolerant
  not documented in the yum man-page
  not documented in the yum man-page
  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

 note that --tolerant does nothing, so I'm not 100% sure what to do about that atm.

 The others are easy-ish additions.

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!

include grouperase
Comment 6 Jan Hutař 2008-04-02 10:37:56 EDT
"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,
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.
