Simplifying the website instructions

Registered by Benjamin Humphrey on 2010-04-21

The current instructions for new contributors are too complicated and lengthy. We need to develop better methods to make it easier for contributors to get involved in the project, and we need to have an in-depth look at the current wording to see how we can make sure it doesn't intimidate new users.
