The newly-introduced CONTRIBUTING.md serves the same purposes and
lives in the path where most people would look for it.

-These notes intend to help people working on the checked-out sources.
-These requirements do not apply when building from a distribution tarball.
-See also docs/hacking.html (after building libvirt using the information
-included in this file) for more detailed contribution guidelines.
-* Requirements
-We've opted to keep only the highest-level sources in the GIT repository.
-This eases our maintenance burden, (fewer merges etc.), but imposes more
-requirements on anyone wishing to build from the just-checked-out sources.
-Note the requirements to build the released archive are much less and
-are just the requirements of the standard configure && make procedure.
-Specific development tools and versions will be checked for and listed by
-the bootstrap script.
-Valgrind <http://valgrind.org/> is also highly recommended, if
-Valgrind supports your architecture.
-While building from a just-cloned source tree may require installing a
-few prerequisites, later, a plain `git pull && make' should be sufficient.
-* First GIT checkout
-You can get a copy of the source repository like this:
-        $ git clone https://libvirt.org/git/libvirt.git
-        $ cd libvirt
-We require to have the build directory different than the source directory:
-        $ mkdir build && cd build
-The next step is to invoke ../autogen.sh:
-        $ ../autogen.sh
-And there you are!  Just
-        $ make
-        $ make check
-At this point, there should be no difference between your local copy,
-and the GIT master copy:
-        $ cd ..
-        $ git diff
-should output no difference.
-Local Variables:
-indent-tabs-mode: nil
