virsh man page is missing all of the vol-* commands. Patch to include them attached.
Last modified: 2010-11-11 09:49:57 EST
Description of problem:
In RHEL 6 (beta), the virsh command has many available commands for working with volumes:
vol-create create a vol from an XML file
vol-create-from create a vol, using another volume as input
vol-create-as create a volume from a set of args
vol-clone clone a volume.
vol-delete delete a vol
vol-wipe wipe a vol
vol-dumpxml vol information in XML
vol-info storage vol information
vol-list list vols
vol-path convert a vol UUID to vol path
vol-name convert a vol UUID to vol name
vol-key convert a vol UUID to vol key
However, the man page for virsh has no information regarding any of them.
The attached patch, also submitted upstream, adds them to the virsh man page.

Steps to Reproduce:

Adds the vol-* commands to the virsh man page, as submitted upstream.
*** Bug 600641 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The attached patch was applied upstream, but it includes documentation for vol-pool, which does not yet exist in RHEL6. I'm creating another bug to add that, and this can depend on it (or we tweak the patch to remove a few lines).

tweaked to avoid merge conflict on rhel6
merge conflict resolved: rhel6 build does not include e5f31f46 from upstream, which added a missing =back before SECRET COMMANDS.
libvirt-0_8_1-9_el6 has been built in RHEL-6-candidate with the fix.
Verified this bug with RHEL6 RC build and it passed:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
