A couple of notes from me wanting to add a quick doco pr. Note, I have 
pointy hair and as of late my cotributions have been to foreman. So, 
take this with a grain of sand.

I knew I wanted to submit a patch. I knew pulp used git a Jira. I 
assumed I needed to open an issue:

1) went to http://www.pulpproject.org/
2) Did not see anything which said "How to contribute"
3) I guessed and clicked on Developer Setup.
4) I see "How To Contribute" and think I am on the right track.
5) Docs is not a way to contribute. Booo. I assume you will take my 
awesome idea anyways.
6) I see the link to redmine, click on it. It takes me to new issue for 
pulp. I assume I want this on pulp_rpm.
7) I click on projects, and I look for pulp_rpm. I assume the project 
name == git hub component name. I realize it is stupid.. but it took me 
a few to find RPM Support.
8) I opened a new ticket, I want to categorize it, but that list does 
not seem to be accurate.
9) Create the issue. Woot!
10) Back to the page on (4) I looked at the Contribution Checklist. I 
did not see anything about Commit Messages. I assumed that was wrong, 
adn searched around for it. Found it down in Branching model.
11) Got an email asking an admin to check it. I looked at the issue, did 
not see the PR attached to the issue.

More to come.
