Give people a single link they can click in the contributing guide
Doc Jones mentioned that one of the things making it hard to get started
is that the amount of information is overwhelming, between the
dev-guide, contributing guide, and discussion platforms. This gives
people a single link they can click to ask for help.

Thank you for your interest in contributing to Rust! There are many ways to contribute
and we appreciate all of them.

The best way to get started is by asking for help in the [#new
members](https://rust-lang.zulipchat.com/#narrow/stream/122652-new-members)
Zulip stream. We have lots of docs below of how to get started on your own, but
the Zulip stream is the best place to *ask* for help.

Documentation for contributing to Rust is located in the [Guide to Rustc Development](https://rustc-dev-guide.rust-lang.org/),
commonly known as the [rustc-dev-guide]. Despite the name, this guide documents
not just how to develop rustc (the Rust compiler), but also how to contribute to any part
of the Rust project.

To get started with contributing, please read the [Contributing to Rust] chapter of the guide.
That chapter explains how to get your development environment set up and how to get help.
not just how to develop rustc (the Rust compiler), but also how to contribute to the standard library and rustdoc.
