Description Honza Horak 2014-06-24 08:50:36 EDT
Description of problem:
If I install dnf-plugins-core, some new commands are added into `dnf --help`, which is great, but when I look into `man dnf` there are not. It is probably not possible to alter man page after installing another package, but I guess it would make sense to have some notes about additional commands in `man dnf` even if dnf-plugins-core is not installed (and information that one needs to install that package to have those commands working).
Comment 1 Tim Lauridsen 2014-06-24 09:15:06 EDT
dnf-plugins-core is a collection of tools with a man page for each tool

you have to use man dnf.plugin.<command> to see the man page for a given command

there is also online docs here:

I know but with the current approach I was not able to find the particular commands I looked for. At least brief notice about where to find man pages for other commands (or that there actually are other man pages) would help imho.
Comment 3 Tim Lauridsen 2014-06-24 13:36:44 EDT
In the future there will proberly by all kind of plugins adding extra commands to dnf in different packages beside dnf-plugins-core, the dnf man page can not point to all of them.

dnf help command will give a summery of the command, but the user need to now, how the show the man pages for a given command.
Comment 4 Jan Zeleny 2014-06-25 02:00:43 EDT
Perhaps just a note that there might be a set of other man pages dnf.plugin.* would be sufficient. Maybe in the "see also" section? No need to extend it with each plugin we add.

Fixed upstream by 705c005.
