Description

Hello,

New users can have some problems regarding properly "getting involved". Currently there are three quite different sections on explaining this:

http://dojotoolkit.org/getting-involved

http://dojofoundation.org/about/get-involved

and:

http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/developer/index.html

I strongly suggest some sort of refactoring of the "get involved" topic, updating it with the newest information, code, docs syntax etc. That's how new users could be faster integrated into getting involved community.

Btw. I believe current http://github.com/dojo/docs system will work greatly. You could provide something similar for get-involved topic as well so CLA contributors can correct typos etc as fast as possible.

Thank you for you great efforts. Regards, Peter Kokot.

is this resolved with the most recent updates to the website and the doc wiki at http://livedocs.dojotoolkit.org/?

http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/developer/ seems to be the definitive resource for this for dojo. the dojo foundation still has their own and that's probably as it should be since dojo is just one project out of many in the dojo foundation.

Thanks. As I see it:

"get involved" link should contain only quick overview (as it does now), only without styleGuide (which is outdated): http://dojotoolkit.org/community/styleGuide.php

and svn infos (which is also a bit outdated I think):

http://dojotoolkit.org/community/usingSubversion

It is usefull, however these informations read only new people and they are in the process of signing CLA etc. Why bother them with these outdated details if they can be found in reference guide, which is better place for this information and can also be faster to change, update etc. Maybe there should only be links to reference guide's style guide and svn info.

Removed most of this content, directing people to visit the Dojo Foundation site and the reference guide content instead.
