I'm not saying there aren't problems that we should fix, just that it's hard to come up with good instructions that won't run the risk of breaking people's systems.

We can certainly document the settings thing, but the whole idea is that you shouldn't need that file unless you want to override a setting - the problem is that we wanted the assets to rebuild if it changed so we added a dependency on it which causes the error. Ideally we want a dependency that is optional so that if the file exists and is changed the assets are rebuilt.

Yes I realise the instructions advise running yarn, and it's likely to be more important at some point, but sadly Ubuntu has not packaged yarn yet which makes it tricky. That's quite new and we're still working out the best solution. Maybe we should just document that step as optional for now.
