Description Jo-Erlend Schinstad 2010-05-18 00:21:24 EDT
Description of problem:
If you try man virsh to look for things related to the storage pools, then you'll discover that those options aren't mentioned at all. 

Since this is a fairly important part of virsh and the manpage doesn't cover it, other things might be missing. It would be nice if someone who knows virsh very well took a look at it and uncovered anything else that might be missing.

I second this request, pool-* commands are missing from the virsh manpage.

    virsh: improve documentation
    Document several missing commands.  There's more work that could be
    done, but incremental improvements is better than no patch at all.
    * tools/virsh.pod (autostart, connect): Improve grammar.
    (create): Improve example.
    (domjobabort, domjobinfo, domxml-from-native, domxml-to-native):
    (storage pool commands): New section.
