Issue #9254 has been reported by zzak (Zachary Scott).

----------------------------------------
Bug #9254: ./doc/contributing.rdoc -> CONTRIBUTING.md
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9254

Author: zzak (Zachary Scott)
Status: Assigned
Priority: Normal
Assignee: zzak (Zachary Scott)
Category: doc
Target version: next minor
ruby -v: 2.1.0dev
Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


I will abbreviate the current contributing document and move it to ./CONTRIBUTING.md ( in markdown format )

My goal is to encourage proper contributions for users of github, see also: https://github.com/blog/1184-contributing-guidelines

Contributions via github have recently increased tremendously, we should take full advantage and encourage new contributors with this easy to follow guide.

I plan to complete this after the release of 2.1.0
