I finely find the time to start writing the Contributors Hub page. The first version of the "people person" part is online.
Others part will follow when I will have time.

I just found this page: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Help_FreeCAD. I'm surprise that this page did not pop up before in this conversation. Because, it's a duplicate with a contributor hub, I'm going to merge the "contributor hub" page and the "help FreeCAD" page. And delete the contributor page, if I sort out how. So big change of strategy, I want to push this well written page in the sunlight and make it appear in the main page on the documentation. The name is the only default I found in it:
I don't really like the title of this page. "Help FreeCAD" seems like you can search help there, not like you go there to help. If I'm clear. Also, help it sounds negative. It sounds like FreeCAD need to be saved. Contribute is in my opinion more positive.

Could we renamed "Help FreeCAD" => "Contribute to FreeCAD"?

Also, don't you think that the end of the the "Get involved/How to participate" of the main page is a duplicate with the "help FreeCAD" page. Should there be only one page on the subject? After, it's going to be difficult to maintain if each information is repeated at several place. And I personally don't like the end of this main page, there is too much text for a main page. Don't you think it be nice to place the contribution part next the the other hubs? And place all those duplicated informations in the "Help FreeCAD" page. This way the main page would be more clear and serious.

More questions that action in this message. I still don't fell confident enough to make the change on this page.

Indeed the whole question of "how to contribute to FreeCAD" could be organized better.

But making drastic changes on the wiki always potentially creates a lot of debate, so I would suggest you (unless you don't mind to have your changes mercilessly reverted :mrgreen: ) to prepare your proposals in separate pages first... There is also a "Sandbox:" prefix that you can use to propose different versions of existing pages.

Thanks Yorik,

I will try to do a sandbox version. By the way, this kind of work flow should be included in this how to contribute page.
