Ticket #4619 defect closed fixed
doc/core/man/twistd.1 seems outdated
|Reported by:||jafd||Owned by:||thijs|
There is a couple of things in man 1 twistd which can be seen as typos, and some describe things which apparently are not there anymore.
First, there is some tautology. A fragment near --rundir is as follows:
-d, --rundir <directory> Change to a supplied directory before running (default: .). -u, --uid <uid> The uid to run as (default: don't change). -g, --gid <gid> The gid to run as (default: don't change).
and then a bit further:
-g, --plugin <plugin name> Read config.tac from a plugin package, as with -y. --syslog Log to syslog instead of a file. -u, --uid <uid> The uid to run as. -g, --gid <gid> The gid to run as.
First, I believe the --plugin parameter went away at some point, as twistd doesn't display it altogether. Second, -g --plugin conflicts with -g --gid. And third, --uid and --gid are described in two places.
