#12346 closed defect (too_vague)

sysupgrade -b and -r options are special, help is confusing and -r expects an image file (that is not used)

Reported by: fercerpav@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc: jow@…


The help text specifies that "image file or URL" is not optional but in fact it is not required for dealing with the backups. Also, current sysupgrade version still expects an extra argument when used with -r even though it's not used anywhere later.

I suggest to provide two alternative "Usage" lines that would explicitely explain how to use it for the usual case and for -br.

Don't see the problem. If you're really after splitting hairs then provide a patch implementing your suggestion. After reading the above sentence three times and comparing it with "sysupgrade --help" I totally have no idea what this is about.
