Hello! My name is Andrew Toskin. My handle on GitHub and other web
platforms for developers is terrycloth.
I'd like to contribute to the GIMP documentation, including the main
gimp.org website. I figure the first place I'd like to start would be
clarifying *how to contribute*. The "Get Involved" page <
http://www.gimp.org/develop/> does a good job of listing the varieties
of ways people can contribute, but does not talk much about how to
actually do it.
For example, what is the preferred workflow for making and submitting
edits? I see that the gimp.org files are managed the git repository at
<https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp-web>... Is there was a way for
people outside the development team to send pull requests, like on
GitHub? mitch, on the #gimp IRC, suggested that new contributors
probably have to start out by submitting patch files to the mailing
list until they've proven themselves. If that's true, then I would send
you a patch which adds an explanation of this process to the "Get
Involved" page. Or, if there's a simpler way, let's talk about that.
What do you think?
