Description Ladislav Laska 2016-03-21 15:06:50 UTC
The new rewrite of revdep-rebuild is missing the -e/--exact switch, although the manual still specifies it as valid. It would be great to update the manual at least. Implementing the -e would be even better, as I sometimes do use revdep-rebuild together with a big update.

Reproducible: Always

Man page update in commit:

But I'm leaving this bug open, so that we can implement this option in the python version.
