Description Graham Perrin 2016-02-05 05:59:18 UTC
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/zfs-term.html uses the word 'zpool' to describe a pool. 

For a page that's about terminology, please be correct, unambiguous. 

zpool is a command.
Comment 1 Shawn Debnath 2016-04-30 14:28:01 UTC
This is correct, it should be pool instead of zpool. Verified with Oracle documentation as well: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18752_01/html/819-5461/ftyue.html

Working on a patch.
