If this is terminology to be displayed in a user interface, not
technical identifiers, then this hyphen is wrong. "List enabled" is a
verb applied to an object, and is a reasonable short form of "list all
enabled modules". "List-enabled" is a compound adjective that means
something like "enabled for listing". Presumably modules that aren't
list-enabled are omitted from the list.

If these are supposed to mean "check whether something can be
upgraded/rebased", then these hyphens are also wrong. To "check-upgrade"
something means either to upgrade it in a "check" way, or else to first
check it and then upgrade it.

If, on the other hand, these terms can't contain spaces because they're
command line parameters, then they should be written in all lowercase.

And if I'm completely off base, then perhaps you should have provided a
little more context.
