A 'senior' dev just questioned us (by question, I mean scold) when I suggest writing some additional information regarding db patching scheme of our project on our Wiki, just thought it might be useful for other possibly new devs later.

Apparently that would be 'spoon- feeding' them and it is totally NOT GOOD.

    Keep thinking as you are. Don't take the senior devs attitude. Good luck.

    If the info you want to add is so arcane that YOU can't extract the information via code or Google, write the docs for next time you visit. If it's about a process, write a script instead as far as possible, that's better documentation. Never optimize for anyone but yourself, you can teach those who need to ask you to match your level of higher. You don't want noobs to destroy your code anyway. Be senior today, don't wait for it.
