Bug Description

The default sort order is 'open'. The help text incorrectly states 'path' as default option:
--sort=SORT how to sort the pack file when dumping [default: path]

this should be:
--sort=SORT how to sort the pack file when dumping [default: open]

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at

At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).
