Unclear instructions for contributing to R lessons #304
I can't seem to find a clear simple set of instructions on how to contribute to the R lessons. As I recall they used to be in contributing.md, but perhaps that was modified at some point so R-specific things (like only modify the Rmd files) are not there. This should be fixed.

The contributing.md seems to be restricted to Git/GitHub instructions. But if contributors are testing their code locally (like we all do, right? RIGHT?), and generate files that shouldn't be included in the PR (md or Rmd?), are there instructions for that? (I think this is what the OP is about, right @naupaka ?)
Yeah I think the trick is that the contributing.md comes from the styles repo, which is across all lessons, and the R lessons have some particularities that are distinct. This will also be the case if/when python development shifts to jupyter notebooks from markdown.
