Thanks for explaining your experience.

I found and fixed two more navigation links that went to the discourse source
page instead of the html last night.

One took awhile to take effect, and one was more or less immediate.

The note on the intro source page [3] says once per day,
I waited about 30 hours, but didn't see it updated.
My purpose here, was less to do with my edit, but to
see if the file name changed, as I have linked to it directly
from the base page [4].

i.e. that particular edit to the intro page was basically a test.
