Rather than just specifying the RFC with the paragraph to go look up,
can you either add the revocation options or say something like:

+            doc=_('Reason for revoking the certificate (0-10). See
\'ipa help cert\' for revocation reason details.'),

IMO, it is a little annoying to go look up revocation reasons when those
reasons can either be added to the help output or exist already in `ipa
help cert`.

FTR I added it to the top level help because the reasons are used in multiple places and didn't want to duplicate them, and adding them to a specific option help would overload it big time IMHO.


Hi everyone
thanks for your valuable comments. I fully agree that it is not recommended to duplicate this information. So as Rob suggested, I should avoid to add this information to cert_revoke option and thus I plan to modify the help message as follow:

doc=_('Reason for revoking the certificate (0-10). Type "ipa help cert" for reason details'),

Do you agree with that modification? Thanks in advance and regards
