I cant seem to find any documentation on what the -includefeatures parameter does. Obviously it returns features in the output of the stsadm command, but is it deployed or activated features?

Yes it doesn't seem to be documented very well. It appears that it only displays activated features, both visible in the UI and hidden in the UI.

Sample output:

Thank you very much. –  John S Dec 13 '11 at 17:28
    
The only documentation I can find is a passing reference about changes made in the Octobet 2009 CU: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/sharepointserver/bb735839. The enumallwebs operation page doesn't even list it as a parameter: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd793606(v=office.12).aspx or technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd789634(v=office.12).aspx –  shufler Dec 13 '11 at 18:48
    
I know. I could get the info to print, but I just wanted to make sure it displayed what I wanted. Again, thanks for the quick and informative reply. –  John S Dec 13 '11 at 21:07

This method shows features, setupfiles and eventrecievers that are currently installed on the site. This seems to be helpful if you are planing to migrate to 2010.
