tags 260149 upstream
thanks

Tomasz, I think this should be fixed upstream.....

Package: passwd
Version: 1:4.0.3-29
Severity: normal

For clarity, usermod command should provide GNU --long style options
that would clarify the commands when used from scripts (when you
look af the code after 2 months...). The current manual page only
offers shot options:

       usermod [-c comment] [-d home_dir [-m]]
               [-e expire_date] [-f inactive_time]
               [-g initial_group] [-G group [,...]]
               [-l login_name] [-p passwd]
               [-s shell] [-u uid [-o]] [-L|-U] login

This would be in par with other similar commands like adduser and groupadd
