Bug#902399: autopkgtest --help usage differs from manpage (order of testsrc and [testbinary...])

Package: autopkgtest
Version: 5.3.1
Severity: normal

The --help usage suggests that the testbinary files should go before
the testsrc.  the manpage suggests the other ordering:

0 dkg@alice:~$ autopkgtest --help | head -n1
usage: autopkgtest [options] [testbinary ...] testsrc -- virt-server [options]
0 dkg@alice:~$ man autopkgtest | grep -A2 ^SYNOPSIS
       autopkgtest  [options...]   testsrc  [testbinary...]   --   virt-server
0 dkg@alice:~$ 

It's quite possible that both are intended to work.  however, it would
be cleaner if the documentation would pick one form and stick to it
to avoid confusion.

thanks for maintaining autopkgtest for debian,
