Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131807
after an update a serious discrepancy between yum and its docs
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:49:55 EST
Description of problem:
After an update to yum-2.1.3 its manual page does not describe
that version anymore. For example, it refers to documentation
of yum-arch which is not available. It describes commands like
'yum clean oldheaders' but attempt to use that results only
in "Usage: yum [options] ..." message.
OTOH there are some actions like "generate-rss" which are not
described at all and options mentioned in Changelog ('--obsoletes')
where a meaning cannot be glimpsed even from a usage message
(not mentioning any other form of a documentation).
BTW - how to achieve effects equivalent to an old 'yum-arch'
is a real mystery.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. yum 2.1.X is not yet complete.
2. I acknowledged the lack of docs when I announced yum 2.1.X on
fedora-devel-list and yum-devel list
3. if you'd like to make a repository download and install createrepo
I'm going to close this as upstream b/c it's something that's known
and being worked on by the upstream maintainer, me.
