Patch to add (required) to the required options in `katello repo enable -h`

When running katello from the command-line, some subcommand help screens do not show the required options.  For instance, `katello org create -h` shows:

  --name=NAME           organization name eg: foo.example.com (required)

The (required) at the end shows that --name is a required option.

However, `katello repo enable -h` does not show any required options.  For instance, --name is required, but it shows:

  --name=NAME        repository name

Each of the required options should be appended with (required).  --name, --org and --product are all required for `katello repo enable`.  I have included a patch to fix this issue.

There are several other places where this needs to be addressed as well (e.g., `katello package list`).

Comment 2 Petr Chalupa 2012-03-26 08:18:25 EDT
It looks like that in case of `katello repo enable` and `katello package list` a repository can be specified by --id or by --name, --org, --product. 

    def check_options(self):
        if not self.has_option('id'):

I found 6 other similar cases. 

How should these options be documented? And should it be documented?

These bugs have been resolved in upstream projects for a period of months so I'm mass-closing them as CLOSED:UPSTREAM.  If this is a mistake feel free to re-open.
