Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.66-3
Severity: normal

LVM manpages does not name nor explain several options.


a) man page for lvreduce talks about -f , --noudevsync , -l and -L and points to lvm man page, which talks about several others, but not -r or -n

b) lvreduce --help says there are options like -r or -n

Thus, one man page, either lvm(8) or lvreduce(8), is incomplete. And same for other LVM commands.
