+Propellor is free software, released under a BSD license. Anyone is free to
+modify and distribute it; indeed doing so is a fundamental part of how
+propellor is configured and used.
+You don't have to contribute your patches, but you're encouraged to do so;
+let's all make propellor awesome together! Patches can be sent to
+<> or pull requests can be posted to [[todo]].
+To certify that a change is released under propellor's BSD license,
+you can use `git commit --signoff`.
+Propellor has its own [[coding_style]], which you are encouraged to follow
+-- at least when you want to get a patch merged into propellor.
+When writing code for your own internal use, feel free to ignore all the
+rules, except the ones about avoiding partial functions.
