Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 712941
spicec --help should mention WAN features for Windows guests only
Last modified: 2011-12-06 10:22:34 EST
Description of problem:
Currently "spicec --help" mentions the WAN options but does not mention that they are applicable for Windows guests only.
I'm not sure we should mentions that in --help in case linux guest/agent gain (some of) these features later on.
If linux guest/agent gain these features at some point, then we can remove this message then.
The thing is, the client with these help messages and the guest with or without WAN features support may run on totally unrelated machines which are not upgraded at the same time. Maybe we can go with something like "(if supported by the guest vdagent)"? in --help

Swapna, would such a description work for you? Feel free to suggest a different wording if this one sounds weird.

To prevent confusion and be more clear about spice-client WAN options (namely "color-depth" and "disable-effects"), spicec --help now specifically mentions that WAN options work only "(if supported by the guest vdagent)".
