Well, you're both right and wrong.  Right in that they should be in a
wiki somewhere.  Wrong in that they should *also* be in the project in a
prominent place—someone just getting started is likely to start with
exactly one project, and it would be best to have the HACKING
instructions where they can find them in that project.

Besides, copying bits is cheap, right?  :)
