Short form: if the contribution is scientifically useful, then it will also be useful for your career.
It seems to me that the implicit question within your question is whether you should be investing your energy into something else instead, like try to turn it into a peer-reviewed publication in a high-impact-factor journal, and whether this sort of less formal publication is a "waste of time." If your PI is well-experienced in journal publication and decides this isn't well-suited for a journal publication, then I would be inclined to trust your PI's judgement.
The nice thing about doing a more informal publication like this is that it can also potentially be much more lightweight to prepare and publish: you don't have to follow anybody else's formatting requirements, nor worry about what peer reviewers will attack you on. You can just write it up nice and simple and the way you'd like to and post it online.
Then, if it's useful to other scientists, it will be cited and you will get credit. Not as much as for a journal paper, but quite likely with a similar "value for effort" ratio for you. Moreover, computer science is a particularly friendly field for getting credit for such alternative forms of contribution, in which many scientists have become famous for their tech reports and software projects rather than their journal papers. And if it turns out not to be useful to other people, trying to publish it "higher" instead would likely be a worse use of your time in any case.
