As promised, here is a patch to try to address $SUBJECT.
Summary of changes:
In 25.2.4. "Setting Up a Standby Server":
* Get rid of the extraneous short paragraph,
* move the full-size paragraph up to where the now-extinct short para was,
* add an archive_cleanup_command to the example recovery.conf,
* flesh out the wording,
* add links to 26.1 and F.22.
In 26.1. "Archive recovery settings":
* Add detail to the description of how it works,
* add an example recovery.conf snippet,
* per Fujii-san's comment, indicate that multi-standby setups require
* link to F.22.
In F.22. "pg_archivecleanup":
* Edit and clarify wording,
* standardise label for the <archivelocation> argument,
* again indicate the multi-standby issue,
* link to 25.2.
I'll drop this onto the next open commitfest. If it passes muster, it
sure wouldn't hurt to backpatch it to 9.0.
