I posted a question with a fair amount of information as recommended. After some comments and a discussion in chat, I added some updates, and now the question is becoming too long. There will probably be more updates because the issue is not resolved.
At the same time, as we've been homing in on the answer, I can see that some of the information I included before are not really relevant/useful.
Is it a good idea to rewrite the question more concisely with the hindsight of new information or is it better to show more explicitly the process it went through at the expense of getting quite long?
On one hand I'm thinking of reference value (future users looking for answers shouldn't have to unravel a whole process to figure out what's going on), but on the other hand, comments or answers already posted might become confusing without the original version of the question.
