Description

Github expects there to be a top-level file named "CONTRIBUTING" or "CONTRIBUTING.md" with instructions on how to get started. We should create such a file, and have it send new developers to our documentation.

See my branch contributing.

I realize that I am touching on bikeshed issues here, so let's try to get something good enough merged, and defer perfection until later.

(A tiny change I would suggest, or just fix myself later on, is to remove the ".html.en" the volunteer url. That way if we ever resume doing translations in the future, readers can get whichever language their browser is configured to ask for.)
