Description Thomas Ribbrock 2003-01-06 08:08:29 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020903

Description of problem:
rpm supports several command line options that are mentioned in 'rpm --help',
but not in the man page of rpm.



My guess is that none of the "popt/alias" options are documented.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'man rpm'
2. Search e.g. for --redhatprovides
3. Option is not documented

Expected Results:  All commandline should be documented in the man page.
Alternatively, the man page should contain pointers to where the missing
information can be found.

As popt aliases are external there is no good way to provide man page
documentation for them. popt plugs into rpm --help however.
