Documentation on Contributing to MariaDB



I've started a project to consolidate and clarify information on
contributing to MariaDB.

My first step was to take this page:


and move all of its redundant information to this page:


The How Can I Contribute... page still holds a function as part of the
MariaDB FAQ so I think it should stay where it is and just serve as a

My plan is for the "Contributing to the MariaDB Project" page to become
the primary starting place for information on contributing. To that end,
I've given it a shorter slug: http://kb.askmonty.org/v/contributing
(the longer slug still works).

Currently most of the information on the contributing page is specific
to developers, but I intend to expand the non-developer-specific parts
over the coming days.

As the non-developer parts are expanded there will come a point where
the page will need to be split into sub-pages, but the contributing slug
will always point at the landing page for contributing. All articles
about contributing will also link back to this main contributing page.

Let me know if you have questions or want to help (there are several
contributing topics which could use an article of their own, I'll post a
list later). I'll also post updates on progress from time-to-time.
