Hi, I'm trying to use the docker provider with a Docker daemon (actually podman) that is listening on a UNIX domain socket. I keep getting various errors about being unable to parse the docker host. Is there any reference anywhere (or a piece of code that I could look at) that would tell me what sort of values are acceptable for DOCKER_HOST? Thanks!
Actually, I've figured this out by looking at the Docker daemon docs at It turns out that I was missing a few slashes after the initial "unix:".
