These are the ones I remember from the top of my head: there is
obviously more info around. There is also a lot of overlap. Without any
mentoring whatsoever, I'd say this is the minimal set for the common
case: cleaning up some rotten hack on github and contributing to
ELPA.git. Though most of it also applies to contributions to Emacs
trunk of course.

  think M-x auto-insert should be mentioned in there somewhere.

Sorry, didn't see it and didn't follow that part of the discussion. Were
you looking for comments on any specific part of it?
