spacewalk-setup does not show help
Last modified: 2009-09-17 02:59:27 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
no help messages.
its help shown.
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.

Even better -- let's not put the hardcoded package name there.

More proofreading will be needed eventually.
Thank you for the bug report.
I confirmed it works as expected. Thanks for your quick work!
I'll close this.
Let me keep this bugzilla open for a while in MODIFIED state, to verify that it
got to the next package build / release.
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.
