Great! Thanks a lot to all who helped yet!

That's really mysterious. The layout at least should insert the
`last_updated` value. I currently have no clue.

Strictly speaking, the documentation might have a version of its own,
but having that displayed could be very confusing for readers.

One could simply add markup like this on every page::

  :Author: JW <jw at grokheaven.org>
  :Version: This tutorial is tested for Grok versions 1.0-1.2

I guess this is easier to handle and maintain than complicated template

IMO all links except the last two ones ("What's changed" and "Grok
Community Documentation") should stay. One can discuss, however, whether
the tutorial and developer notes should be shipped with the reference
rather than with the the community docs.

Can you tell what went wrong? Most people with a more recent LaTeX
install should be able to build PDFs. At least it works here.

Thanks for all your efforts!

Best regards,
