jmm@bp6:/home/jmm> rpm -q up2date python-popt

[root@bp6 up2date_client]# up2date --usage
Usage: up2date [--configure] [--src] [--nosrc] [--dbpath=<dir>] [--justdb]
        [-k STRING] [--nosig] [--nox] [--showall] [--solvedeps=<deps>]
        [--tmpdir=<directory>] [--version] [--show-channels]
        [--whatprovides=<deps>] [--channel=STRING] [--gpg-flags] [--nodownload] 
[OPTIONS] <packages>

there's a lot of things missing from that --usage that are seen in --help


that last one seems like it should definitely be mentioned in usage :)

Comment 1 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2002-03-24 23:05:31 UTC
--usage was never supposed to have all oprions listed.
Manpages usually do that.

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-03-26 00:15:10 UTC
hmm, looks like some sort of bug in python-popt...

I'll take a look

Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2002-03-27 00:40:44 UTC
looks like python-popt doesnt show an item in --useage if
it has a short option flag. (ie, -h, or -d)

Doh, definately a python-popt bug. I'll
reassign it once it shows up as a component ;->

Comment 4 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-03-27 15:39:35 UTC
Changed back to up2date.

Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2002-03-27 15:45:36 UTC
erk, how did this get to be umb-scheme? I must of done that when
trying to set it to python-popt

Comment 6 James Manning 2002-03-27 15:51:50 UTC
created bug 62106 against bugzilla about the missing component

Comment 7 David Lawrence 2002-03-27 16:01:23 UTC
Changing component to python-popt

Comment 8 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-03-28 16:57:45 UTC
The correct component is python-clap actually, which is missing too :-)

Comment 9 Mihai Ibanescu 2002-03-28 17:39:37 UTC
After further investigation, looks like a popt bug.

Comment 10 James Manning 2002-05-15 19:22:27 UTC
since things seem kosher in 7.3, i'm considering this fixed
