At the top of the post (if it is a wiki type as our guide posts are)
there is a little counter which shows the number of versions.
It is a Number followed by a "pen on a paper" icon.
That opens up the history and you can switch through versions.

For example I see you adding the self-link to "Introduction" as last edit.
Josh before did change "virt-* tools" to "virt tools" and so on.

IIRC html usually rendered sub 30 minutes for me, mostly almost instantly.
And that seems to be true as your [2] has your last changes.

I haven't checked the PDF in the past so I don't know what to estimate.

But I agree that there the whole section of virt-tools is missing.
PDF directly goes from uvt to lxd skipping virt-tools.
Maybe that is why Josh updated the link?

There might be something missing on the virt-tools page.
Other than the majority of pages around it it was created by me (a
split from other virt* pages).
I have added the tags to the page and links from the introduction to
finally confirm it was rendered into HTML.

But I never checked the PDF, maybe there is some other tweak yet
unknown to me needed to properly render it into PDF as well.
I'll ask around and let you know if I find anything.
