    (http://docs.couchdb.org/en/latest/contributing.html)

    :+1: 
    The **upside** to maintaining a [bonafide CONTRIBUTING policy file](https://github.com/blog/1184-contributing-guidelines)
here in the root of the project tree, is that it becomes easily discoverable by folks who
arrive at `apache/couchdb` project on github to open issues and submit pull requests... the
policy is revealed thusly above both the "create new issue" and "create new pull request"
forms:

    :-1: 
    The **downside** is dual-maintenance - keeping this `CONTRIBUTING.md` policy file in sync
with the same content in the [`share/doc/src/contributing.rst`](https://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/master/share/doc/src/contributing.rst)
file (plus whereever the source code contribution guidelines are?).
    
    Unless someone knows of a clever way to reconcile that to NOT be dual-maintenance.
