Subject: [yocto] why does quick start guide refer to non-provided "poky-image-sato"?

maybe i'm misreading something, but the yocto QS guide provides the
sample command:

$ bitbake -k poky-image-sato

however, nothing provides that target. i can see the git log entry:

commit 1947b17478187bb623da74484747e470ce42d206

documentation/yocto-project-qs/yocto-project-qs.xml: changed build command

The command used in the example to build an image was using
'bitbake core-image-sato', which is only available in master and
not Bernard. So, I changed the command to be 'bitbake poky-image-sato'
at Dave Stewart's request. He located and pointed out the error.

but it seems that "core-image-sato" is perfectly valid, at least at
the moment. clarification?
currently, scripts/oe-setup-builddir lists one of the common targets
as "core-image-sato", so certainly *something* is out of sync.
As I understand it documentation repository updates are reflected on the
website so the docs tend to reflect the released version.

It would be nice to be able to provide development & release
documentation but I can't see it happening any time soon.
