Docker can now run in Docker, in Docker, in Docker, in…

It's Dockerception! Docker can now run within Docker

One of the (many!) features of Docker 0.6 is the new "privileged" mode for containers. It allows you to run some containers with (almost) all the capabilities of their host machine, regarding kernel features and device access. Among the (many!) possibilities of the "privileged" mode, you can now run Docker within Docker itself.

In that post, Jérôme also links out to his dind (Docker-in-Docker) repo at the tail end which includes the Dockerfile, the wrapper, and some extra documentation.
