Subject Re: Mini-Proposal: Make it easier to contribute to the contributing to Spark Guide

Is there any way to tie wiki accounts with JIRA accounts? I found it weird that they're not
tied at the ASF.

Otherwise, moving this into the docs might make sense.

a release cycle. However, in practice I find that the wiki is rarely changed. To me it also
serves as a place for information that isn't exactly project documentation like "powered by"

a little time a while ago removing some duplication across the wiki and project docs and think
there's a bit more than could be done.

We've already got a contributing to spark page which just links to the wiki - how about if
we just move the wiki contents over? This way contributors can contribute to our documentation
about how to contribute probably helping clear up points of confusion for new contributors
which the rest of us may be blind to.

generated from markdown. It would also mean that the results of any update to the contributing
guide take a full release cycle to be visible. Another alternative would be opening up the
wiki to a broader set of people.
