We added a Contribute: http://docpad.org/contribute line in recent versions, but would be nice if we did this automatically for the user. We could detect the presence of the ~/.npmrc file and if so, then run npm star docpad for them.
npm star docpad
Perhaps a docpad star command and just remind the user every 5 runs or so?
