missing options in satellite-sync.8
Last modified: 2009-09-10 16:33:24 EDT
Description of problem:
There are missing options in the rhn-satellite-exporter.8 man-page, but
'--help' lists them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # satellite-sync --help
2. # man satellite-sync
Missing in man page:
All options should be in both outputs (man page and --help message)
Used mmalik's script for this (gives some false-positives):
# cd /mnt/qa/scratch/mmalik/options-comparator/
# ./compare-options.sh `type -p satellite-sync`
Guessing man page path:
The binary analysis was NOT done
Doing man page vs. usage message comparison
The program reported 37 option(s)
The man page reported 34 option(s)
34 COMMON option(s):
3 option(s) reported by the program ONLY:
0 option(s) reported by the man page ONLY:
Few more things I have noticed while reading man-page:
Options set by default if no options given: --cache-refresh-level 2,
and all --step options.
* Why do we notice "--cache-refresh-level" here when it is deprecated?
mount point for import : disk update or disconnected install
* Could we clarify "disk update or disconnected install"? I know
-m stands for "path to the directory with channel dumps", but do not
know what does "disconnected install" mean here.
forcibly process all full package metadata regardless of diff
* Should be "process all full package" -> "process full package"?
e-mail a report of what was synced/imported (sent to whomever is
considered the receiver of "traceback_email").
* satellite-sync sent me (administrator of the server) the email even
when I did not provided this option. Is that all right?
I know all this are insignificant issues, but better to ask :)
VERIFIED on Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090327.0-x86_64.
satellite certificate to import(use only with -m option)
