 We'll have to disagree on that, then, and it's your project. For a
 project I was running, I would consider it a completely unacceptable
 barrier to non-code contribution.


From my experience: I'm working on an open-source project right now for my
employer. This project has had a number of contributions over the past 3
weeks (since I started), most of them coming from people that don't know
git. These contributions were translations, design changes, copywriting. It
was generally more difficult and time-consuming to merge in changes
submitted by people who didn't use git than from people that did. Also,
patches from people generated by git were generally more quality.

I fully back Tobie's decision to set up some bar for contributors.

 Thanks. Purely git? Not ruby (unless you also want to install Jekyll)?


People can edit pages from the website and preview the result in their text
editor if it supports Textile/Markdown. Jekyll is only needed if they want
to generate the complete site to see how will a reflect when put online (not
necessary in most cases).

Speaking of Textile/Markdown, we're going to standardize on Markdown, right?
I think that we should get rid of all Textile in this process, then? I
recall we started with Textile on Mephisto but eventually started writing
mostly in Markdown.

Octopress might also be a good option:

http://github.com/imathis/octopress

It's built on Jekyll, but has a number of additional features. Ryan
Daigle is using it on EdgeRails.info:
