docs: adjust the technical overview for the rename `pu` -> `seen`
This patch tries to rewrite history a bit: the mail contents that have been added to Git's source code are actually fixed, we cannot change them in hindsight. But as the `pu` branch _was_ renamed, and as the documents were added to Git's source code not so much as historical record, but to describe the status quo, let's pretend that we have a time machine and adjust the provided information accordingly. Where appropriate, quotes were added for readability. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
