Description Andre Robatino 2009-06-12 23:14:49 EDT
Description of problem:
In the applydeltaiso man page, the description says

       applydeltaiso - create a deltaiso from two isos

which is the correct description for makedeltaiso but not applydeltaiso.  It should say something like "create an output iso from an input iso and a deltaiso".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Andre Robatino 2009-06-12 23:31:10 EDT
The exact same mistake is (not surprisingly, since both man pages are dated Feb. 2005) in Rawhide, deltarpm-3.4-16.fc12.  Should this be cloned or just change its Version to rawhide?
Comment 2 Jonathan Dieter 2009-06-19 14:13:00 EDT
Go ahead and leave it as is.  I'll take care of it for both (though it will probably take longer for the F11 update to come through).
Comment 3 Andre Robatino 2009-06-19 16:50:53 EDT
While you're at it, there's a trivial spelling mistake in applydeltaiso (I mentioned it in an email to Michael Schroeder but never heard back), which I'd rather not file a separate bug for.

$ strings /usr/bin/applydeltaiso | grep suce
iso sucessfully re-created, md5sum:                          <--- should be "successfully"
Comment 4 Jonathan Dieter 2009-07-27 12:03:03 EDT
Both fixed in deltarpm-3.5-0.git.20090727 in Rawhide, but because of other changes in deltarpm, fixes won't be backported to Fedora 11 (unless we get xz built for F11).
