Turn "Version History" sections in Data documentation into actual subsections


(Toolkit :: Telemetry, enhancement, P3)




Tracking Status
firefox64 --- fixed

(1 file)

Some of the "Version History" sections in the ping descriptions are shown in the Data Documentation ToC, because they are erroneously top-level headings (e.g. [1]).
They should be turned into second-level headings instead.

This is needed for:

- Environment
- main ping
- crash ping
- event ping
