Description zhanghaiyan 2010-05-14 07:21:33 UTC
Description of problem:
`virsh nodedev-dettach` has spelling error - detach should has  1 't' instead of 2 't'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- libvirt-0.8.1-3.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # virsh help nodedev-dettach
    nodedev-dettach - dettach node device from its device driver

    nodedev-dettach <device>

    Dettach node device from its device driver before assigning to a domain.

    <device>         device key

Actual results:
it uses 'dettach', obviously spelling error

Expected results:
Replcae 'dettach' with 'detach'

Comment 3 Daniel Berrangé 2010-05-14 09:54:43 UTC
THis has been known about for a long time, but it cannot be fixed because renaming the command will break any scripts currently using this functionality.

Comment 4 Chris Lalancette 2010-05-14 13:38:55 UTC
However, we could add a shadow command that used exactly the same implementation, but was named correctly.  Then we would have both "virsh nodedev-dettach" and "virsh nodedev-detach", but newer users could use the correct spelling.

Comment 5 Daniel Berrangé 2010-05-14 13:58:53 UTC
That will cause more trouble than it is worth, because then people will write scripts / docs using 'nodedev-detach' and they'll not be compatible with any existing deployment.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2010-05-14 14:07:40 UTC
Well, we could certainly backport the right spelling to any production we ship, couldn't we? (I realize you can't *force* people to deploy errata, but...)
