avahi-resolve incorrect help message
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
avahi-resolve --help says:
$ avahi-resolve --help
avahi-resolve [options] -a <host name ...>
avahi-resolve [options] -n <address ... >
while the meaning of the options is the opposite:
-n expects the host name as an argument (foo.local, for example), and
-a expects the IP address as an argument (10.0.0.1 or 3ffe::1, for example).
either the options are misnamed, or the --help message is wrong.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I wanted to report this upstream to the freedesktop.org bugzilla, but apparently
they are not accepting bug reports for avahi anymore.
Yes, this is a typo in the upstream source - fixed in CVS .
The fix will go into the next avahi-0.6.9.9+ version, but I don't think
it warrants a package respin .
You can raise avahi bugs at : http://avahi.org - if you've not already
done so, I'll raise an upstream bug about this - thanks.

avahi-0.6.9-9.FC5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Looks OK here, the bug can be closed. Thanks!
