Added information and resources to `developers.html,' aimed at making it
easier for first-time contributors to know how to submit their work. I assumed
that even if potential contributors know how to create an m-file, they may not
have experience with Mercurial or Git, so the text now goes step-by-step
through cloning and patch creation.

I also included information on adding correct copyright notices (useful for
new files) and a set of links for best coding practices. Minor grammar and
spelling changes were also made, and the existing headings were slightly

Most of the new material was compiled from Octave and Octave Forge sources
scattered across the web. Where helpful, I included links to those sources.
