Description Satoru SATOH 2008-07-04 04:37:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Spacewalk-setup does not show its help. So there is no way to know its options
except for reading Spacewalk::Setup code.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. spacewalk-setup --help
Actual results:
no help messages.

Expected results:
its help shown.

Additional info:

I'll attach a dirty, quickly hacked and halfway workaround patch for this issue. 

I have little experience with perl and it should be unrefined. Correct way to 
fix this problem might be writing complete POD text in bin/spacewalk, I think.

Simplified version of the patch.

I've simplified the patch a bit. The trouble is -- Spacewalk::Setup only seems
to have the boilerplate POD, not any meaningful docs.

Changes committed to git:

More proofreading will be needed eventually.

Thank you for the bug report.
Comment 5 Satoru SATOH 2008-07-10 04:53:35 EDT
I confirmed it works as expected. Thanks for your quick work! 
I'll close this.
Comment 6 Jan Pazdziora 2008-07-10 05:31:27 EDT
Let me keep this bugzilla open for a while in MODIFIED state, to verify that it
got to the next package build / release.
Comment 7 Devan Goodwin 2008-09-05 10:29:01 EDT
Looks good in spacewalk 0.2. My apologies, forgot to check --help when I was re-organizing the installer code into spacewalk-setup. :)

Spacewalk is released for long time.
