I've changed the home page on CodePlex and under the development section
I've done the following:

   - Renamed 'Contributing to IronPython' to 'Getting started with the
   - Created a new page called 'Contributing to
   that includes the information from Dino and Jeff plus some other

If more 'easy' bugs or unit tests are identified, I think they should
probably go in the 'Contributing to IronPython' section because it might be
easier to find for new contributors.
