Guides: outdated contribution-guide still live #1330

When googling for "contributing to rails" or "contributing to ruby on rails" this outdated guide is the top result: http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org/contributing_to_rails.html

This guide has been removed in docrails, but apparently still exists as a .html file. The correct guide should be http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org/contributing_to_ruby_on_rails.html

It confuses developers since e.g. it says to create tickets in lighthouse instead of in github.

I think it's only a matter of removing or redirecting contributing_to_rails.html to the new guide to stop Google from linking to it.

(Also, the docrails github repo has no "issues" so I couldn't create it there. Sorry if this isn't the right place for it.)

Good catch. I've added permanent redirects for those ones.

Regarding docrails and "issues", yeah this is the place. To explain that: documentation belongs to Rails. docrails is not a project in itself, only a branch to be able to commit fixes directly. If there's any issue with the documentation, as this one, that's a Rails issue.

Thanks!
