Perhaps you can edit that page and mention CONTRIBUTE (not CONTRIBUTORS,
sorry for the nitpick) in the page.  Here are the URIs of CONTRIBUTE in
the current stable release and master:

* https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/CONTRIBUTE
* http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/plain/CONTRIBUTE

Thanks - that's exactly the kind of solution I was seeking!

I've rectified the entry in ChangeLog.2. I also included a few references to the CONTRIBUTE file in the GitForEmacsDev page, as you suggested. I don't know that it will be clear to every developer who visits that page, but I think the clue is more available than it was before.
