Began page with links to relevant wikimedia information. Is this too redundant (you can find this info via Help) or is it useful to give a task-oriented pointer?

I think a task-oriented pointer is useful. I have added some stuff explicitly referring to the Wikipedia Manual of Style. A few other things are useful to have direct pointers to. The Wikipedia and MediaWiki references may be too voluminous for basic tasks.--TomYu 00:23, 3 April 2008 (EDT)
I think the current level of detail is fine for now, although things may need to get broken out as more content develops. --SamHartman 11:28, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

how the others do it...

I noticed that How to contribute pages on other opensource sites refer to contributing to development, not contributing to the wiki. I think we should divide this into 2 pages, explicitly titled How to contribute to Kerberos and How to contribute to this wiki.

I agree the primary focus of this page should be how to contribute to development of the project. I think using the wiki, which for this wiki implies contributing to it, falls into that. I agree that once we have enough content to split the page, we should do so. I wouldn't worry about splitting though until the page is 50K plus.
