Please answer these questions before submitting your issue. Thanks!

What version of Go are you using (go version)?

1.8.1 (its not necessary in this case)

What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

GOARCH="amd64"
GOBIN=""
GOEXE=""
GOHOSTARCH="amd64"
GOHOSTOS="linux"
GOOS="linux"
GOPATH="/home/agniva/play/go"
GORACE=""
GOROOT="/usr/local/go"
GOTOOLDIR="/usr/local/go/pkg/tool/linux_amd64"
GCCGO="gccgo"
CC="gcc"
GOGCCFLAGS="-fPIC -m64 -pthread -fmessage-length=0 -fdebug-prefix-map=/tmp/go-build545835865=/tmp/go-build -gno-record-gcc-switches"
CXX="g++"
CGO_ENABLED="1"
PKG_CONFIG="pkg-config"
CGO_CFLAGS="-g -O2"
CGO_CPPFLAGS=""
CGO_CXXFLAGS="-g -O2"
CGO_FFLAGS="-g -O2"
CGO_LDFLAGS="-g -O2"

Again, not necessary

What did you do?

I was following the steps mentioned in contribute.html, trying to complete the CLA.

What did you expect to see?

I expected to be able to complete the CLA by following the steps.

What did you see instead?

The information was slightly incorrect. To be specific, under the Completing the CLA section, there is a sentence - If you do not have a signed agreement listed here, you can create one by clicking "New Contributor Agreement" and following the steps.

This is incorrect, I could not find any "New Contributor Agreement" button in the UI. The button exists when I switched to the old UI, but its not there on the new UI.

I went up to the Which CLA section and realised that one has to create the CLA from there itself. And then it shows up in the Gerrit UI.

So I believe the above-mentioned sentence should be removed. And maybe it should be emphasized clearly that one has to create the agreement from the 2 links in the Which CLA section itself.

I will be happy to send a CL to rectify this. 😄

This is a dup of #20207, and it's already fixed on tip (https://golang.org/cl/42412). The website will be updated when go1.9 is out.
