Patch is in CVS, changing status to MODIFIED.
Comment 5 Ondrej Moriš 2009-11-23 09:58:11 EST
There are still some minor issues concerning man pages vs. slapd --help

* -V, in man page has bad formatting (missing "empty line" between -o and -V)
* -T, in man page we have {a|c|d|i|p|t|acl|auth} instead of 
  {acl|add|auth|cat|dn|index|passwd|test}, confusing (?)
* -n service_name in man page and -n serverName in --help 

There is actually no --help or -h option of slapd. Usage is printed to stderr when invalid options are given. 

Not sure if this does need respin... does it?
Comment 6 Jan Zeleny 2009-11-23 10:20:25 EST
I don't think it needs a respin. These are all cosmetic issues:
* empty line isn't really important, no information is missing because of it
* -T options are correct in both forms. And the longer form is used on top of that man page as well
* -n parameter serverName might be a little bit confusing, even though it is described as service name right after.

Now you have my opinion, but it's your call. I don't know exactly what is QA's policy about these minor issues.
Comment 7 Ondrej Moriš 2009-11-25 04:14:07 EST
Agreed. Probably the best way is to switch this bug into verified (it's fixed) report a new bug with all these cosmetic issues. Thanks!
