Maybe I'm doing something wrong here? Can someone reproduce not getting 
an updated timestamp?

Oh, sure, that's what I meant: a template that people can copy to start 
a new document with.

I think these navigational links do belong in the 
official-documentation-tree, that indeed contain the tutorial etc. 
Actually, now I notice the little title above the tab bar says "Official 
Grok Documentation", where I guess it should say "Grok Community 
Documentation", right?

Hmmm, for the grok-doc checkout, the build script tries to call "make 
all_pdf", a target that seems not to be defined in the Makefile. Again, 
I might be doing something wrong here.
