There are three such occurrences:

* Section Out-of-date: please find another term for
"architectures that don't keep up", and modify the update_out.py

another term for such architectures.

For the record, "the update_out.py mentioned" is britney, i.e. the testing migration scripts.

The name of the variable mentioned above was changed in production nearly two years ago - see https://salsa.debian.org/release-team/britney2/commit/fe7cc466e18b77493d5b4dade14e5e7a50055680 - so both of these occurences can be resolved by simply updating the documentation to match reality.
