I installed fabric using the 1.2.0 tag from the github repo on ubuntu 10.04. fab --shortlist gives the usage output instead of the short task list. The long version (fab -F short --list) works as expected. I looked at the source but don't see why it's misbehaving.
% fab --version
% fab -F short --list
% fab --shortlist
Usage: fab [options] <command>[:arg1,arg2=val2,host=foo,hosts='h1;h2',...] ...
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-V, --version show program's version number and exit
-l, --list print list of possible commands and exit

This is broken for me as well and the pull link above doesn't work.
Yea, just noticed that they never actually posted a link to their repo/branch, and the username from Redmine may not truly match Github, as the GH @ori account has no Fab repo. (Or any repos.)
Anyway, yes, it's a known regression and I will be fixing it for the next bugfix release.
EDIT: N.B. seems to have broken in 1.1.
Flip "listing commands" flag in main.py if `--shortlist` is given.
