The Contributing Code page could be a lot clearer in what steps are involved in submitting a patch for the first time. It is currently a 15+ paragraph page that meanders through the requirements. It would be more direct to list the requirements for contributions (small distinct changes that meet the coding style guidlelines, ChangeLog entry generated by prepare-ChangeLog, patch created with "svn diff"/svn-create-patch), and how to go about getting it into the tree. Making this clearer would make it easier for new-comers to understand the relatively strict requirements we have for patch submission.

Cleans up the contribution page. Adds a quick list of steps with more information later on. Adds info on WebKitTools/Scripts so that each mention of a script doesn't need to have the full path, etc (would that section make more sense at the top?).
This also takes care of bug 8690.
