good work: it's a mistake as documented here

the file to fix is this:

because it is included in the documentation here:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
@include os-config-desktop.texi
@end lisp
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
built via make as defined here
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
%D%/os-config-%.texi: gnu/system/examples/%.tmpl
        $(AM_V_GEN)$(MKDIR_P) "`dirname address@hidden";        \
        cp "$<" "$@"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
