+-----------------------------

  24
+Though Django's documentation is intended to be read as HTML at
  25
+http://docs.djangoproject.com/, we edit it as a collection of text files for
  26
+maximum flexibility. These files live in the top-level ``docs/`` directory of a
  27
+Django release.

+
  29
+If you'd like to start contributing to our docs, get the development version of
  30
+Django from the source code repository
  31
+(see :ref:`installing-development-version`). The development version has the
  32
+latest-and-greatest documentation, just as it has latest-and-greatest code.
  33
+Generally, we only revise documentation in the development version, as our
  34
+policy is to freeze documentation for existing releases (see
  35
+:ref:`differences-between-doc-versions`).
