When editing an XML document for the documentation by using anonymously, and submit my changes, the changes to the XML do not appear in the documentation. What's wrong?

Expected result:
The changes should have applied immediately, and should be immediately visible in the documentation.

Actual result:
My new changes do not appear. I don't know what's wrong, possibly the changes require approval before being displayed.

The documentation is not a wiki, changes are not visible immediately.

For anonymous users, their changes must be saved as "patches for review" (note: this is different from just saving the file, which stores the 
changes under "work in progress").  These patches then get reviewed by members of the documentation team, who commit them into 
the documentation sources proper. This last review step can take a while!

Then, every Friday, the documentation sources are built in various forms including the files that eventually get sent out to the mirror 
sites for the online manual.
