 I'm 80% through a deep review of everything here. Some small feedback that
 can be addressed outside of the improvements that I am working on:

 @chanthaboune that it should be hyphenated. I looked at the documentation
 already found within the core auto updater, and it was all over the place

 the new code and documentation we are introducing, it should be added to
 the [https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/best-practices/spelling/
 spelling best practices page] and a new ticket can be created to fix the
 current inconsistencies.

 auto-update on and off within a site dashboard. This should only be
 available on the network admin plugins screen for the primary network, and
 only network admins should have the ability to turn auto-updates on or
