            Bug ID: 5306
           Summary: Include --interactive in the non-verbose help for hg
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: stable branch
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Mac OS
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: feature
          Priority: wish
         Component: Mercurial
          Assignee: bugzilla at selenic.com
          Reporter: joshgold at alum.mit.edu
                CC: mercurial-devel at selenic.com

The help for revert only shows the --interactive flag in the verbose help, not
in the default help message. This makes it very hard to discover that the
feature is present, and differs, for example, from the help for hg commit.

For example, I was getting ready to comment bug 4193 to say the feature didn't
exist in version 3.8.4 when I had the idea to check verbose help.

If there are other hg commands that provide the same option (not as a default)
I would request that they all get checked to make sure their default help shows
the flag as well.
