Description Alexandre Oliva 2001-10-03 14:46:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010913

Description of problem:
There are no man-pages for raidhotadd, raidhotremove nor
raidhotgenerateerror, and the --help output is confusing.  It's not clear
that the `*' is supposed to be a list of disk device names, not necessarily
md ones.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.raidhotadd --help
2.man raidhotadd
3.man -k raidhotadd
4.pull hair out

Actual Results:  usage: raidhotadd [--all] [--configfile] [--help]
[--version] [-achv] </dev/md?>*
No manual entry for raidhotadd
raidhotadd: nothing appropriate

Expected Results:  usage: raidhotadd [--all] [--configfile filename]
[--help] [[-version] [-achv] </dev/md?> </dev/[mhs]d*> [...]
Spiffy man-page explaining how/why/when to use these commands.
