+    <h1 class="title">Get Involved</h1>
+    <p>You don't need to be a software developer to contribute to 
+Apache Airavata. To be successful this project 
+requires a huge range of different skills, levels of involvement and degrees of 
+technical expertise. So, if you want to get involved in Apache Airavata, there 
+is almost certainly a role for you. </p>
+<p>We are looking for people to:</p>
+<li>provide feedback</li>
+<li>write or update documentation</li>
+<li>help new users</li>
+<li>recommend the project to others</li>
+<li>test the code and report bugs</li>
+<li>fix bugs</li>
+<li>give us feedback on required features</li>
+<li>write and update the software</li>
+<li>create artwork</li>
+<li>translate to different languages</li>
+<li>anything you can see that needs doing</li>
+<p>All of these contributions help to keep a project active and strengthen 
+the community. The project team and the broader community will 
+therefore welcome and encourage participation, and attempt to make it 
+as easy as possible for people to get involved. </p>
+<h2 id="mailing_lists">Mailing lists</h2>
+<p>Your first engagement with the project should be to subscribe to our
+<a href="/airavata/mailing-lists.html">mailing lists</a>.</p>
+<h2 id="decision_making">Decision Making</h2>
+<p>The most important thing about engaging with any Apache project is that everyone
+is equal. All people with an opinion are entitled to express that opinion and, where 
+appropriate, have it considered by the community.</p>
+<p>To some the idea of having to establish consensus in a large and distributed team

+sounds inefficient and frustrating. Don't despair though, The Apache Way has a
+set of simple processes to ensure things proceed at a good pace.</p>
+<p>In ASF projects we don't like to vote. We reserve that for the few things that need

+official approval for legal or process reasons (e.g. a release or a new committer). 
+Most of the time we work with the consensus building techniques documented below.</p>
+<h3 id="lazy_consensus">Lazy Consensus</h3>
+<p><a href="/airavata/docs/governance/lazyConsensus.html">Lazy consensus</a>
is the first, and possibly the most important, consensus building 
+tool we have. Essentially lazy consensus means that you don't need to get explicit
+approval to proceed, but you need to be prepared to listen if someone objects.</p>
+<h3 id="consensus_building">Consensus Building</h3>
+<p>Sometimes lazy consensus is not appropriate. In such cases it is necessary to
+make a proposal to the mailing list and discuss options. There are mechanisms
+for quickly showing your support or otherwise for a proposal and 
+<a href="/airavata/docs/governance/consensusBuilding.html">building consensus</a>
amongst the community.</p>
+<p>Once there is a consensus people can proceed with the work under the <a href="/airavata/docs/governance/lazyConsensus.html">lazy

+consensus</a> model.</p>
+<h3 id="voting">Voting</h3>
+<p>Occasionally a "feel" for consensus is not enough. Sometimes we need to 
+have a measurable consensus. For example, when <a href="/airavata/docs/governance/voting.html">voting</a>
in new committers or 
+to approve a release. </p>
