- Replace by a reference to the description which was
  moved to the BitBake manual.

- Also drop the reference to the Yocto Project Development Tasks Manual
  which doesn't add extra information on this variable.

-      Lists the versions of the :term:`OpenEmbedded-Core (OE-Core)` for which
-      a layer is compatible. Using the :term:`LAYERSERIES_COMPAT` variable
-      allows the layer maintainer to indicate which combinations of the
-      layer and OE-Core can be expected to work. The variable gives the
-      system a way to detect when a layer has not been tested with new

-      To specify the OE-Core versions for which a layer is compatible, use
-      this variable in your layer's ``conf/layer.conf`` configuration file.
