Proposal in order to streamline, harmonize and centralize documentation in order to make it easier to get involved. Currently there are sometimes three places covering the same topic.

TODO: Check pages not listed here, but listed in http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Bugzilla

Current situation[edit]
