      Add basic CONTRIBUTING file · 4d87c2e2

      I picked up a bunch of the pieces from wayland's version:
      
      https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/wayland/wayland/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md
      
      
      
      The weston one is fairly similar. Then I rather massively trimmed it
      down since in reality libdrm is a bit a dumping ground with very few
      real rules. The commit rights and CoC sections I've copied verbatim
      from igt respectively drm-misc. Weston/Wayland only differ in their
      pick of how many patches you need (10 instead of 5). I think for
      libdrm this is supremely relevant, since most everyone will get their
      commit rights by contributing already to the kernel or mesa and having
      commit rights there already.
      
      Anyway, I figured this is good to get the rules documented, even if
      there's mostly not many rules.
      
      Note: This references maintainers in a MAINTAINERS file, which needs
      to be created first.
      
      Note: With the gitlab migration the entire commit rights process is
      still a bit up in the air. But gitlab commit rights and roles are
      hierarchical, so we can do libdrm-only maintainer/commiter roles
      ("Owner" and "Developer" in gitlab-speak). This should avoid
      conflating libdrm roles with mesa roles, useful for those pushing to
      libdrm as primarily kernel contributors.
      
      v2: Comments from Emil:
      - Recommend subject prefix.
      - Fix copypaste fumbles, this isn't igt/wayland ...
      
      v3: Comments from Marek:
      - libdrm moved to mesa, update the document. Atm the entire account
        request situation is entirely not clear for gitlab and mesa
        projects, so that's a bit up in the air. Also, should probably send
        an announcement to dri-devel@, which didn't happen.
      - amd folks don't submit their patches to dri-devel, document that.
        Probably applies to other drivers too.
      
      v4: Comments from Rob:
      - Also include kernel/userspace in the commit counts criteria, due to
        libdrm's special role as a glue library.
      
      v5: Summarize the irc discussion on gitlab roles in the commit message
      a bit.
      
      v6: Some grammer stuff from Eric E.
      
      v7: Use --local in git config (Eric E.)
