Eg: take Extension:Newsletter

It would be great if we can have another section titled

Contributing

You can contribute to the extension by:

$ git clone ssh://<USERNAME>@gerrit.wikimedia.org:29418/mediawiki/extensions/Newsletter.git

This is an infobox, it’s not for short stories but for​ basic data. “Contributing” can be a section in the main text, or in a README file in the Git root.

I’m also enclined to be against such a change, at least in the current presentation of the infobox: I find there are already too much things in this infobox and it is already difficult to read. I find a general re-organisation of the whole infobox would be very welcome, perhaps removing some links and/or using pictograms for some links.

A step further about what Tacsipacsi suggests, perhaps a template Contribute could be created and transcluded in the page, something like Template:ExtensionInstall does for installation.
