#13289 closed bug (notabug)

Contributing guide is outdated

Do we still need https://github.com/jquery/jquery/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md?

It seems official github readme is a lot more up to date.

For example, contributing guide states that you should: npm install grunt -g and then "grunt" but this will not work.

Readme has it right: npm install -g grunt-cli

A lot of duplication exists between the two files.

We should remove contributing.md.

There's now a http://contributing.jquery.org that covers the contributing process. If you'd like to submit a pull request to remove duplicate information and reference the new site that would be great! There are probably still some core-specific issues that may need to be covered in CONTRIBUTING.md and having the file there provides another entry point for people to get involved, so I wouldn't want to get rid of that file completely.

Yes I can update jquery readme and remove duplicate information and link to the contributing guide.

But for now the website is down http://contributing.jquery.org/.

Maybe you forgot some DNS changes.

It's http://contribute.jquery.org, actually, but the .com forwards to .org. The site is on github here: https://github.com/jquery/contribute.jquery.org
