A quick note on and GitHub hooks

Firstly, lets get something straight: is an awesome place to host Ruby documentation. However, when I went to add a new project, the suggestion to add a post-commit hook containing “” had me baffled. After wasting time following a red herring, I finally discovered that what I wanted was GitHub’s post-recieve hooks. Great! However, I could have saved myself a lot of time if was just a little clearer with its suggestion, perhaps providing a relevant link. If you have a project floating around the Internet, please consider taking a little more effort when explaining things and reduce the amount of assumed knowledge – users will really appreciate it!

UPDATE: has ears everywhere, and the new project page has been modified to address my little gripe. Yay!
