Remove from "Editing" section the content that is redundant with the "Getting started" section of the contributor's guide

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

The content I'm talking about, is everything between "Editing" title and "Essential editing topics" subtitle (which means, everything from "For small corrections, such as typos" to "but we will try to answer any questions the best we can.").

As the text mentioned above doesn't seem to be more useful/informative than Gentoo_Wiki:Contributor's_guide#Getting_started, and is, as far as I can see, only duplicating information, shouldn't it be removed ?

Thanks Blacki , I'll have a bash at making it less redundant with my latest reworking of this article and of the contributors guide.
btw, I still haven't properly caught up with all the changes that went on while I was away, but you seem to have been really busy with great edits - thanks a million ! :).
Also, I have had a complete rewrite of the link checker for some time now. It now resembles something more serious and maintainable that just a pile of random commands xD. As soon as I get round to it, I will test it and upload it to github.

This section seems to have deviated from the contributor's guide a bit more now. What is still duplicated is info that it is important for people to see. Think of it like advertisements: the more exposure the better :). Looking to close discussion...
Hope everything is OK with you Blacki , haven't seen you for a while...
