This email calls for a vote to introduce restructure the CLI to use nested commands instead
of flags. The vote will last for at least 1 week (June 18th 12:00 BST), and at least three
+1 (binding) votes have been cast.

The original discussion  <>
was positive and the proposed implementation is at
Since this is a breaking change it will be for Airflow 2.0.0 only.

An example of the proposed changes to the cli:

- `airflow list_dags` -> `airflow dags list`
- `airflow pools -l` -> `airflow pools list`
- `airflow pools -a` -> `airflow pools add`
- `airflow initdb` -> `airflow db init`

And an example "group" help message:

    usage: airflow db [-h] {init,reset,upgrade} ...

    positional arguments:
        init                Initialize the metadata database
        reset              Burn down and rebuild the metadata database
        upgrade            Upgrade the metadata database to latest version

    optional arguments:
      -h, --help            show this help message and exit

This is my (binding) +1 vote.

A reminder about binding/non-binding votes: PMC members and Committer's votes are binding
for AIP; other members of the community are encouraged to vote with a "(non-binding)".
