Update by one the metric counting the number of times that the excellent documentation at https://www.pantsbuild.org answered a question someone didn't have to ask in the slack.

WTF happened to

One thing to keep in mind: if the docs get too good, then what would people talk about on the slack? Might loose community cohesion! I guess that falls under Zeroth World Problems™.

Hahaha Benjy, Stu, and I have had that discussion a couple times in fact, and all vehemently agreed that that's an excellent problem to have and not one to avoid Big thing we've realized especially recently tho is that good docs at pantsbuild.org aren't enough - we need excellent error messages. We can't assume everyone has read the docs nor remembers it all. (h/t to Rust community for speaking to that)
