I have not seen anyone (other than you) state this.

Can you please give _detailed_ reasons why ./CONTRIBUTE (I just moved
it) is inadequate?

Not just "I prefer web pages", but _why_.

Not just "files are _so_ last century; the web is hip".

It was out of date; that's being fixed, and was not mentioned as a
problem anyway.

I have given reasons why local files in git are better than web pages;
please explain your reasons.
