From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19curl1 i686)

Description of problem:
There is no man page for the script /sbin/service, and its usage message
that you get when you type "service --help" doesn't adequately explain what
it does.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Run "man service".
Run "service --help".

Actual Results:  I didn't get an explanation of what this script does and
how to use it.

Expected Results:  I should have gotten an explanation of what this script
does and how to use it.
