I like how the bar for contributing is made really really low. 
With the “Improve this page” link that exist on every page of the 
documentation, editing is almost as easy as on a wiki. I’m not a 
wizard but I can spot a typo or a dead link, and it is fun to fix 
those right away. These fixes also get merged quickly (the review 
is easy). And once you are in the source code you can’t help but 
look at the implementation, and notice how readable most of it 
is, really. It is nice to have a few of those trivial fixes under 
my belt, because now I know the process and thus it is a little 
more likely that I might contribute more materially, some day.
