danshick-wmde added a comment to T186161: What to do if the WDQS does not synchronise with Wikibase?.

Just a minor comment: may be docker exec demo-wdqs bash could be changed to a more common docker exec wikibase_wdqs_1 bash at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/FAQ#Why_doesn't_the_query_service_update?.

As always, it's a question of what the audience finds most usable. Personally, I think if the audience is likely to search for things using Ctrl-F then my input is not needed -- that means the audience is highly technical and already knows what they're looking for on the page. I will defer to your superior knowledge about the page's audience and revert my changes.
