Error description

  • The existing documentation for the IBM Rational ClearCase
    converter clearfsimport is not correct for the -filter and
    -mklabel options.
    
    The documentation should state:
    
    -----------
    ?filter
        Determines which elements need to be checked out for the
    import to succeed and checks out only those elements.  In
    combination with -mklabel (-mklabel label -filter), only newly
    created directory versions will get the label.
    
    
    -----------
    ?mklabel label
        Attaches the specified label instance to each element that
    matches the name of an imported file or directory, whether or
    not a new version is created. If the corresponding label type
    does not exist, it is created. If the label is already attached
    to an existing element version, it is moved.
    -----------
