What does the 'redirect' front matter setting do?

Quoting the documentation:

redirect Mark the post as a redirect post

Can someone clarify what this means in practice?

How does it relate to the aliases feature?

That line needs to be removed. Aliases is right one.

This is still there in the docs and it confused me.

Sorry for the confusion and my delay in fixing the documentation. It now documents aliases rather than the obsolete redirect variable.
