Just spun up Fedora-Cloud-Atomic-Vagrant-22Alpha-20150305.x8664 to play and learn.

No man command? Am I missing a new dandified man? Or, possibly missing something obvious :)

[vagrant@localhost ~]$ man
bash: man: command not found

[vagrant@localhost ~]$ sudo whereis man
man: /var/usrlocal/man /usr/share/man

[vagrant@localhost ~]$ find /var/usrlocal/man

[vagrant@localhost ~]$ find /usr/share/man

As part of the minimization process for the Atomic host, man-db and man-pages were dropped from the package list.

You can see when and some of the discussion starting on this post to the atomic-devel mailing list: https://lists.projectatomic.io/projec...

The file structure for man you're seeing is provided by filesystem which is probably pulled in as a dependency for basesystem. It's likely an empty set of directories.
