README updates are way more valuable than I think people give them credit for. Adding a simple line of documentation or even an event date such as this can save many people a lot of Googling, confusion, and frustration.

 

Absolutely. A lot of READMEs are missing the helpful snippets around installation that can really fill in gaps for folks that are not super familiar with the environment.

I remember when I was just starting out with Ruby and I didn't quite understand how installing gems worked, it really helped when README was super explicit, even if the step by step could be inferred by anyone with more experience.

Newbies are sometimes best capable of identifying these hiccups.
