Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1294547
The --xml flag should always output xml
Last modified: 2018-01-29 23:42:17 EST
The output of the cli with the --xml flag is inconsistent. Every cli command should output xml if that flag is set.
At the very minimum, a valid xml message could just be the string output wrapped in xml, ie.:
# gluster --xml --version
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
