Hi all,

Currently building automated tests using puppet agent(s), I am puzzled about the '--test' flag.

The official documentation states :

* --test:
  Enable the most common options used for testing. These are 'onetime',
  'verbose', 'no-daemonize', 'no-usecacheonfailure', 'detailed-exitcodes',
  'no-splay', 'show_diff', and 'no-use_cached_catalog'

Reading this, I would assume that running a puppet agent with only the '--test' flag would enable all the aforementioned flags but the '--detailed-exitcodes' flag is NOT applied.

Is this a documentation issue or a technical issue ?

Thanks beforehand for your answer(s)

PS : running puppet 4.8.1
