Is there a way to --watch those theme directories directly w/o copying them over to working blog directory?

To locate theme's files on your computer, run `bundle show` followed by
the name of the theme's gem, e.g. `bundle show minima` for default Jekyll's
theme. Then copy the files you want to override, from the returned path to your root folder.

Assuming the theme's hosted someplace like GitHub, do we want to also direct users to the themes website (which will likely have things like docs and examples)?

In theory this would be in the RubyGems metadata as homepage.

You shouldn't have to, because the only way that directory should change is when the Gem gets updated. If you'd like to make local changes to those files, you should manually copy them into your site.

LGTM.

👍 on the idea to go visit the URL, though that could cause issues if you have an old version of the theme and you look at the master branch on GitHub.
