Description states:

You can use puppet — that is, without any subcommand — as a shortcut for puppet apply; it has the rockstar parking in the UI because of how often it runs at an interactive command line. I’ll mostly be saying “puppet apply” for clarity’s sake.

Running puppet without a subcommand currently returns:

warning: Implicit invocation of ‘puppet apply’ by passing files (or flags) directly to ‘puppet’ is deprecated, and will be removed in the 2.8 series. Please invoke ‘puppet apply’ directly in the future.

Recommend removing the cited paragraph altogether or the addition of a note describing the impending deprecation.
