[Buildbot-devel] Ways to Help Buildbot

In our continuing efforts to broaden the Buildbot community, we
realized that we had no central point to describe all of the ways to
help the project.  Sure, contributing code is easy, if that's your
thing, but there's so much more that needs to be done!

So, today I created "HowToHelp":

Please have a look, and consider spending a little of your valuable
time chipping in on the project in whatever way suits you best -- many
hands make light work, after all.  And please keep this page in mind
and point others to it, too.

If you have a great idea for the project that you want to work on,
we'd love to hear about it at botherders at buildbot.net.  We'll do
everything we can to support you.

Many of the improvements in Buildbot have come about this way: the new
buildbot.net website, solicitation of the donations supporting the new
Buildbot infrastructure, the new PEP8 checks on the codebase, the
AngularJS-based web UI, and the plugin support that Mikhail is working
on, to name just a few.
