===========================
+This section explains how the community can contribute code to Django via pull
+requests. If you're interested in how core developers handle them, see

+changes for Trac ticket #xxxxx. By creating a fully-ready pull request you
+will make the committers' job easier, meaning that your work is more likely to
+be merged into Django.

+You could also upload a traditional patch to Trac, but it's less practical for
+reviews.
