           Summary: "Contributing Code" page could be clearer
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://webkit.org/coding/contributing.html
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Website
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: bdash at webkit.org

The Contributing Code page could be a lot clearer in what steps are involved in
submitting a patch for the first time.  It is currently a 15+ paragraph page
that meanders through the requirements.  It would be more direct to list the
requirements for contributions (small distinct changes that meet the coding
style guidlelines, ChangeLog entry generated by prepare-ChangeLog, patch
created with "svn diff"/svn-create-patch), and how to go about getting it into
the tree.  Making this clearer would make it easier for new-comers to
understand the relatively strict requirements we have for patch submission.
