Description

I have few fixes for the website pages related to contributing to the project.

Page: Donations (https://grass.osgeo.org/donations/)

- Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo.org)
+ Open Source Geospatial Foundation (<a href="http://osgeo.org/">OSGeo</a>)
- ...especially the organization of Community Sprints.

+ ...especially the organization of <a href="???">Community Sprints</a>.
+ ...
- We are currently collecting funds for the next GRASS GIS community sprint in 2015 (the last event in Vienna, Austria was a great success!).

No specific idea here. Perhaps whole section can be removed as the same info is later in How is the money used? section. Or something like this can be moved there to have a specific goal ahead.

- GRASS Project Steering Committee (PSC)

Unify with the text in the General GRASS GIS efforts section.

Page: Get involved! (https://grass.osgeo.org/get-involved/)

- Spare time? Nothing to do? Want to give back?
+ Spare time? Want to give back?
- of <a href="&quot;http:/grass.osgeo.org/development/bug-tracking/">feature requests</a>.
+ of <a href="/development/bug-tracking/">feature requests</a>.

The Distribution Packages: Development Pages needs to be changed to something like Creating binary distributions, packages and installers and mention MS Windows and Mac OS and use some words like "operating system of your choice".

- <a href="http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/GSoC/2015">GRASS SoC Ideas 2015</a> (please check proposals and join!)
+ GSoC is a stipend program for students by Google. Check the <a href="http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/GSoC">GRASS GSoC Ideas</a> or propose your own.
- Writing/Updating/Improving documentation

- (patches can be submitted in the "website patches" tracker)
+ Tickets for documentation and web pages can be submitted with the Component set to Docs or Website.
- for more information on the new OSGeo Trac system.
+ for more information on the OSGeo Trac system used by GRASS GIS.

Perhaps the whole page should be restructured to highlight the possibility of non-code contributions (it can still clearly specify the need for the code contributions as well). Perhaps it can mention mailing list activity and wiki maintenance as well.
