Yes.  Try reading CONTRIBUTE in the repository, I hope it is less
confusing.  You can also look at the style of commit log messages with
"git log".

CONTRIBUTE seems to be more current and clear. Together with your confirmation, I feel I have the info I need. (It might make sense to put notes in documents like Submitting Patches deferring to CONTRIBUTE, though that might also require some time and attention to reconcile them...)

Thank you!
