  apport-bug options not mentioned in manpage synopsis

Status in Apport:

Status in apport package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The man page of apport-bug does not mention in the synopsis that
  apport-bug takes options. You will not be informed about additional
  options until you reach the options section.

  The options section says: "Please see the apport-cli(1) manpage for possible options."
  Can you add that apport-bug takes the same parameters than apport-cli, they work the same, and the only different is that apport-bug has a GUI and apport-cli is for the command line (if this is correct)?
