Hi there,

I've added a section to 
covering how to join the new contrib collection. It says:

   1. Maintain an httpup repository for a while (maybe 2-6 month) to get
      used to packaging, following upstream sources etc.
   2. Send an application e-mail to the clc-contrib mailing list 

To be accepted in the new contrib, an existing maintainer will have to
advocate for you; he will also assist you if you have questions, and
verify that your ports conform with the packaging guidelines. Obviously,
it will be a lot easier to find an advocate if you're a respected member
of the community (mailing list, IRC) already.

I hope that there's some interest from everyone here to be an advocate
from time to time, even if there are applicants which are unknown to
most, or need a "not yet, please check this and that first" kind of

Thanks for your cooperation.
Regards, Johannes
