Description Robert P. J. Day 2015-09-02 05:24:21 EDT
Seems that "man docker" (as of version 1.8) should mention the "docker daemon" subcommand -- certainly, "docker --help" has a reference to it.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2015-09-02 08:10:00 EDT
Docker man page needs a rewrite,   We need to eliminate mention or options that are appropriate to the docker daemon command.
Comment 2 smahajan@redhat.com 2015-09-03 17:05:01 EDT
PR Opened upstream


Comment 3 Robert P. J. Day 2015-09-05 05:06:31 EDT
Not sure if I mentioned this elsewhere, but would there also not be a need for a "man docker-daemon" man page?
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2015-09-06 06:50:10 EDT
Yes their should be a docker daemon man page.
Comment 5 smahajan@redhat.com 2015-09-06 10:12:49 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2015-09-07 06:49:33 EDT
Lets make the attempt.  I would prefer the docker-daemon man page not to cover all of the other content about the docker command.
Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2015-09-29 09:23:03 EDT
Fixed in docker-1.9
