Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1259239
"man docker" says nothing about "docker daemon" subcommand
Last modified: 2016-02-16 12:43:14 EST
Seems that "man docker" (as of version 1.8) should mention the "docker daemon" subcommand -- certainly, "docker --help" has a reference to it.
Docker man page needs a rewrite, We need to eliminate mention or options that are appropriate to the docker daemon command.
PR Opened upstream
Not sure if I mentioned this elsewhere, but would there also not be a need for a "man docker-daemon" man page?
Yes their should be a docker daemon man page.
I am not sure if a man page for "docker daemon" will make it upstream.
Even though with docker 1.8 onwards, we can start docker using "daemon" keyword. Docker never made it a registered command. You don't see "daemon" in the list of commands.
In docker words, "docker is both a server, as a daemon, and a client to the daemon, through the CLI" so I feel docker would like to keep this information in the "docker man page" rather than having a "docker-daemon" man page for this.
Lets make the attempt. I would prefer the docker-daemon man page not to cover all of the other content about the docker command.
Fixed in docker-1.9
