This patch consolidates that information (great!) but ends up adding a little more duplication because it doesn't replace the existing info with references to docs/Contributing.rst. It could make sense to get docs/Contributing.rst committed then consider whether other docs can be updated to reference it, or instead to try to incorporate those changes in this patch. I don't feel particularly strongly either way.

Ok great! I agree that in the end, we should get rid of the duplication and I am slightly worried about the additional duplication added by this patch. If people are happy with consolidating  some documentation under the Contributing page, I am happy to link to the Contributing page DeveloperPolicy & co.

I hope this patch can get things started, we can agree on what the end goal should be and start to gradually move some documentation over to the Contributing page, if it makes sense. I expect this to be an incremental process, as we hopefully get some helpful feedback from new contributors. Also, I am not confident enough in my writing skills to single-handedly take on a substantial rework of the docs in a single big patch ;)
