Site is new & a work in progress. Want to help?
This is Contributing, a community resource dedicated to keeping up-to-date information on how to contribute to open source projects.
It gives projects a stable URL which they can put in their documentation (and/or CONTRIBUTING files) providing an abstraction layer, making sure even old downloads of projects still contain a pointer to recent information on how to contribute.
Also, this site [will] allow for project take-overs, if the original maintainer(s) disappear and don't keep their information fresh.
Example project pages:
- http://contributing.appspot.com/contributing — this site itself
Also note: this site is explicitly not a social network, a collaboration site, nor a version control system. It is simply a wiki of pointers to recent information. It's hosted on App Engine and without a domain name so it doesn't require any money to keep running and minimizes risks of it shutting down due to lack of funds or forgotten domain name renewals.
