<p>This is <b>Contributing</b>, a community resource dedicated to
keeping up-to-date information on how to contribute to open
source projects.</p>
<p>It gives projects a stable URL which they can put in their
documentation (and/or <tt>CONTRIBUTING</tt> files) providing an
abstraction layer, making sure even old downloads of projects
still contain a pointer to recent information on how to
contribute.</p>
<p>Also, this site [will] allow for project take-overs,
if the original maintainer(s) disappear and don't keep their
information fresh.</p>
<p>Example project pages:</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="/memcached">http://contributing.appspot.com/memcached</a></li>
<li><a href="/contributing">http://contributing.appspot.com/contributing</a> &mdash; this site itself</li>
</ul>
<p>Also note: this site is explicitly <b>not</b> a social network, a
collaboration site, nor a version control system. It is simply
a wiki of pointers to recent information. It's hosted on App
Engine and without a domain name so it doesn't require any money
to keep running and minimizes risks of it shutting down due to
lack of funds or forgotten domain name renewals.</p>
<p>Feel free to <a href='/s/create'><b>create a project page</b></a> or
<a href='/s/browse'>browse existing projects</a>.</p>
