Right now the wiki isn't particularly accessible to updates by external contributors. We've already got a contributing to spark page which just links to the wiki - how about if we just move the wiki contents over? This way contributors can contribute to our documentation about how to contribute probably helping clear up points of confusion for new contributors which the rest of us may be blind to.
If we do this we would probably want to update the wiki page to point to the documentation generated from markdown. It would also mean that the results of any update to the contributing guide take a full release cycle to be visible. Another alternative would be opening up the wiki to a broader set of people. I know a lot of people are probably getting ready for Spark Summit EU (and I hope to catch up with some of y'all there) but I figured this a relatively minor proposal. -- Cell : 425-233-8271 Twitter: https://twitter.com/holdenkarau
