#148 example in help is not very useful and contains shell meta-characters
Closed: Fixed 4 years ago Opened 4 years ago by zbyszek.

When I copy&paste the example from --help, it doesn't actually do anything, because ! is a shell meta-character. This is under zsh, the command seems to work fine under bash, but anyway, it's not nice to the user:

$ waiverdb-cli -r 123 -r 456 -p "fedora-26" -c "It's dead!"

Also, the example is not very clear. Why is it "dead"? Maybe it would be better to include a more realistic example with real numbers and real message.

Some similar complaints about the unhelpful usage message here too: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1537609

Close that one when this is fixed.
