  Share your desktop documentation incorrect

Status in gnome-user-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The 'Share your desktop' documentation states that after the 'vino'
  package is installed 'Screen Sharing' should become visible in the
  'Sharing' options in 'Ubuntu Settings'.

  However after installing the 'vino' package the 'Screen Sharing'
  option does not become available.

  Instead the package 'gnome-remote-desktop' needs to be installed to
  enable 'Screen Sharing'.

  Documentation URL: https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/sharing-

  Output of 'lsb_release -rd':
  Description:	Ubuntu 21.04
  Release:	21.04
