HowTo: become a contributor

Description

We should provide more in-depth documentation on what people can do, in order to become contributors.

One aspect could be a series on how to write code that conforms to the coding guidelines -- "Writing Code with Style", if you will.

It could be broken up into several sections/chapters/posts -- comments, loops, headers, whitespace, when to check for errors and bail early, structs, etc.

Maybe pointing to specific revision of code in svn, for real working examples of applying the code.
