aah, I see what you mean. I have mentioned on the docker index that the fedora image should be considered semi-official for now since it hasn't gone via releng. 

I'll make sure to doublecheck future stuff, this one was sheer carelessness/excitement.

Sorry about that.

When cross-posting to lists like fedora-devel (where a broad range
of topics get discussed), it's useful to add some more *context* on
how to use/or a URL to usage for people who don't interact with
Docker on a daily basis. The URL you posted doesn't have an actual
image! It's merely contains a command to pull the image once you have
Docker installed, enabled the service, etc.

  $ sudo yum install docker-io
  $ sudo systemctl enable docker.service
  $ sudo systemctl start docker.serivce
  $ sudo docker pull fedora

(And, as others noted on the list - it's useful to double-check with
 rel-eng  before announcing anything as 'official')
