I forgot to mention that main reason for making this is to address this:


README.md is already displayed on the Github page, but CONTRIBUTING.md
should add a notification banner as shown in the link above. The idea is
to attempt to reduce the number of Github pull requests since the vast
majority of us don't pay attention to them.

If you prefer I can remove everything but the "Note to Github Users" and
then mention they should refer to README.md for more info.
