There's a link to the manifest schemas, including manifest list, on the
second line of this issue.


That's about all the docs that are written for it, unfortunately. The use
case is simple at least.

Consider that when you "docker pull reponame:tagname", there may be
multiple manifests in the repo that match the tagname, each for a different
architecture. The manifest list is basically what it says: a list of
manifests that correspond to a given tag name, which a client uses to find
the manifest for a particular architecture.
