This document was suggesting a way to version pre-releases
which doesn't match the latest recommendations from the
contributor guide.

 In order to ensure the versions compare properly, the recommended
-convention is to set :term:`PV` within the
-recipe to "previous_version+current_version". You can use an additional
-variable so that you can use the current version elsewhere. Here is an
+convention is to use a tilde (``~``) character as follows::
-   REALPV = "0.8.16-rc1"
-   PV = "0.8.15+${REALPV}"
+  PV = 0.8.16~rc1
+This way ``0.8.16~rc1`` sorts before ``0.8.16``. See the

+Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded Contributor Guide for more details about
+versioning code corresponding to a pre-release or to a specific Git commit.
