Subject: apt-mark -h only mentions "auto", "manual" commands
Date: Fri, 24 May 2013 10:48:09 +0200
Package: apt
Severity: minor
File: /usr/bin/apt-mark

"apt-mark --help" only mentions the "auto", "manual" commands and that one can
somehow list marks as well (but not how). The other commands are only
documented in the man page.

Please also add "hold", "unhold" and the "show*" commands to the --help output.
