Personally I think the importance of this bug is higher than the current "Low" because there's no documentation or man pages included in percona-xtrabackup rpm packages; the only source of help included in it is --help ...

Ville,

I agree, it doesn't make sense for such a trivial bug to stay in the Low priority queue. Changing importance to High and targeting for 2.1.7.
