spacecmd is acting weird
When running 'spacecmd', it does not seem to accept commands or options:
spacecmd user_create -u tux -l lotr -e firstname.lastname@example.org --pam Usage: spacecmd [options] [command]
When running spacecmd non-interactively, you must take care to escape arguments passed to the spacecmd functions. This involves putting '--' before the command starts so that the arguments to the function are not treated as global arguments to spacecmd. You must also escape any quotes that you pass to the functions so that the shell does not interpret them.
spacecmd -s server1 -- softwarechannel_create -n \'My Channel\' -l channel1 -a x86_64
