             Summary: gfsh help: Improve description of create region 
'--if-not-exists' option
                 Key: GEODE-4645
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GEODE-4645
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: gfsh
            Reporter: Dave Barnes

The create region option `--if-not-exists` (formerly `--skip-if-exists`) is 
described as follows in the gfsh help:

  Skip region creation if the region already exists.

This is inaccurate, as `create region` *never* creates a duplicate region if 
one already exists. The option merely de-escalates the response level from 
"throw an error and stop" to "print an informational message and continue."

Here's a suggested replacement for the help message based on the User Guide 
(edit as you see fit):

  By default, an attempt to create a duplicate region is reported as an error. 
If this option is specified without a value or is specified with a value of 
`true`, then gfsh displays a "Skipping..." acknowledgement, but does not throw 
an error.
