Thanks, Daniel!

You're right about repository link on the Contribute page.  It 
might still be good to mention it earlier, like in the "Ways that 
involve programming" section or even just in the first paragraph 
of the page.

The reason I suggest this is that often when someone is hot on the 
trail of debugging something, they haven't yet decided whether 
they want to become a contributor or not.  They just know they 
want to ook at the latest sources so they can first figure out 
more about whatever ${technical_thing} they encountered.  So 
making the latest sources very easy to find is a way of making it 
more likely that someone becomes a contributor, by removing a 
commonly-encountered barrier.

Best regards,
-Karl
