Description Jared Smith 2008-08-30 12:33:18 EDT
Description of problem:

If your run "create_book --help", it shows to add the --article option to create an article instead of a book.  When you go and try to use the --article option, you get informed that it's not a valid option.  Only by searching the source did I find that you instead have to use "--type=Article".  Also, I would think that the type shouldn't be case sensitive, as I'm sure people will mistakenly use "--type=article" (notice the lower case 'a').

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create_book --help
2. create_book --article --name 'Bugzilla'
Actual results:

[jsmith@localhost tmp]$ create_book --article --name 'Bugzilla'
Unknown option: article

Expected results:

I would expect the help text to match the actual code.

Additional info:

I haven't checked yet, but does the website documentation need to be updated as well?
