Description

I've spent way too much time over the past while scouring the site for instructions on how new projects are supposed to push things to their repos. There is nothing listed anywhere regarding any project management that I can find.

I suggest a "Project Quickstart" guide which has at least the basics of how to do initial project configuration, how to clone their repo, a link to hg basics of some sort, perhaps information as to whether/how the cadmium extension may be useful to them, how to do basic repo management, and how to push.

As it seems like there's an effort right now to lower the barrier to entry, perhaps this could be considered low-hanging fruit, as there are already a number of projects with no activity going on. Perhaps a simple resource will prevent the endless creation of stagnant projects.
