Yeah, that's definitely what I've been doing so far. Just... seeing this kind of glaring issue in documentation for a framework that's pretty new isn't a good sign.
Honestly I feel like they should move to the wiki model for their docs, or maintain them on Github like the tutorials are currently. That way, once someone's gone through the aforementioned trial and error, they can contribute and help other people avoid the same issues they faced.
I mean I've spotted 50+ issues in the Docs I would have already fixed by now if they were open for editing.
