moving contributing into the docs #453
Can we save some effort by copying http://scikit-learn.org/stable/developers/contributing.html#how-to-contribute for the "how to setup for local development" section?
Let's do that in a new PR. We should probably do a bit of a stock take of what we have in the docs where, what mode of operation which bit recommends and do a unification edit. I think our docs have grown in small bursts over time so there are pieces which aren't super consistent with each other. Not a massive problem for more experienced contributors, massively confusing for newcomers. Maybe step one is agreeing on how we think a contribution should be made and having a checklist of steps-to-merged-contribution that people can follow.
