patch to add information to the man page
Description of problem:
The documentation on what spacewalk-clone-by-date exactly does (and doesn't do) is a bit lacking.
The man page starts off with,
" Script to clone software channels and errata up to specific dates ensuring any added packages have their dependencies satisfied. Any destination channels
that do not exist will be created.
but doesn't go into much detail or talk about cloning errata.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the spacewalk-utils package
2. man spacewalk-clone-by-date
See a man page with more detail
The man page doesn't have enough detail.
