Yes, also --discards  option is missing there, will be updated with few more man page corrections.
Comment 4 Zdenek Kabelac 2012-11-27 14:38:59 EST
Man page has been updated together with related fixes for lvconvert.

https://www.redhat.com/archives/lvm-devel/2012-November/msg00033.html

Also other patches are needed to provide documented functionality.

Comment 7 Corey Marthaler 2013-01-02 19:29:29 EST
Fix verified in the latest rpms, now contains both --poolmetadata and --discards.

       lvconvert  --thinpool ThinPoolLogicalVolume{Name|Path} [-c|--chunksize ChunkSize[bBsSkKmMgG]] [--discards {ignore|nopassdown|passdown}] [[--poolmetadata ThinPoolMetadataLogicalVolume{Name|Path}]
       | [--poolmetadatasize  ThinPoolMetadataSize[bBsSkKmMgG]]
