In an effort to streamline and consolidate how code gets submitted to
puppet, we've updated the contributing guidelines. The changes were
along three fronts:
1. Clarify what to target when submitting patches.
2. Reflect the reality that we take code submissions as github pull requests.
3. Simplify the explanation for how to get up and running as a contributor.
We are also in discussions with our lawyers about whether the CLA is
still needed, but there has been no decision about that yet.
The CONTRIBUTING.md document is now a lot shorter, and the longer form
has been moved off to the wiki. You can read it at
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
