Description of problem:
The rhnplugin.conf manpage was not updated since 2006, while the code
base changed significantly in recent years.
The man page lists only gpgcheck= and enabled= options. Compared to
the yum-rhn-plugin included in RHEL6, which allows for example
Man page should also mention configuration sections. And especially
the semantics of the [main] section.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man rhnplugin.conf
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
It seems to me that all options available in `man rhnplugin.conf` are those that are described in `man yum.conf`. Maybe only change is that section names are labels of channels on RHN/Satellite/Spacewalk server. So whole man page can be dropped maybe except
* mentioning man of yum.conf
* and semantics for section names.
* semantics of `enabled` in `[main]` section though that one is kind
Mentioned setting `priority=` is available only when `priority` yum plugin is available and thus is configuration of that plugin (even though it has an impact on our plugin), so our man page is certainly not the right place explain its semantics.
Would it be OK to proceed this way?
I see no problem.
