Description bfan 2013-06-07 02:04:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Some guestfish commands areremoved from RHEL6.5, like:

-get-state            get the current state
-is-busy              is busy processing a command
-is-launching         is launching subprocess
-is-ready             is ready to accept commands

For following commands are removed from the help output. but still can be used in guestfish
-add-drive-opts       add an image to examine or modify
-mkfs-opts            make a filesystem
-ntfsresize-opts      resize an NTFS filesystem
 
it's a regression from the point of view of the customers, so need add some of them back.

libguestfs-1.20.8-3.el6.x86_64
