Thanks for the report.
That has been fixed for the next test release.
Here's the corrected --help output:

  Usage: ./id [OPTION]... [USERNAME]
  Print information for USERNAME, or the current user.

    -a              ignore, for compatibility with other versions
    -g, --group     print only the effective group ID
    -G, --groups    print all group IDs
    -n, --name      print a name instead of a number, for -ugG
    -r, --real      print the real ID instead of the effective ID, with -ugG
    -u, --user      print only the effective user ID
        --help      display this help and exit
        --version   output version information and exit

  Without any OPTION, print some useful set of identified information.
