For this purpose, I think the first sentence suffices as a minimal
summary, while the details can only be explained via the link.

Again I think this is clear from the first sentence (and an explicit
workaround has also been added in the third sentence).

Since the first (and third) sentenc(es) give(s) a cookbook summary,
the details can best be left for the link (at least that was my
intention when I wrote it, which I believe is clear from the explicit
phrase "for details").

Again I believe the first (and third) sentenc(es) is/are the necessary
and sufficient TL;DR, while the link is needed for people who want to
know the details (at least I would be annoyed if there is only a few
line summary and no more information).
