Update of bug #28786 (project cvs):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 1 - Wish               
                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix               
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

The command

  cvs <command> --help

is not a legal command.

The commands:

  cvs --help


  cvs -H <command>

will do what you suggest.

The only reason you get any output at all from 'cvs <command> --help' is
that you are also getting a '<command>: invalid option -- -' output at
the top before it trys to tell you what options you might have mistyped.
To do that, you must first have been able to properly process the global
options needed for <command> to work properly.
