RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Michal Domonkos 2019-05-04 14:50:38 UTC
Currently, it's quite difficult to discover the man pages for DNF subcommands (those that have a separate man page; that is, mostly plugins).  For example, for the "dnf config-manager" command, you have to type "man dnf.plugin.config_manager".  That's bad UX.  For end-users, whether a subcommand is implemented as a plugin or not is irrelevant.

I like how git does this (and probably other programs as well):

  $ git format-patch
  $ man git-format-patch

So, how about:

  $ dnf config-manager
  $ man dnf-config-manager

Obviously, not all the subcommands have a dedicated man page in DNF; and that's fine; for those, we can perhaps redirect to the main dnf(8).

There's also this PR for a minor reference change in DNF man page: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf/pull/1528
