So where do I get plugged into this process, e.g.

1. Where do I pick up the latest software to review?
2. Where do I go to modify the information?
3. What else might I have to do to get fully signed up and committed to
this process?  I've been ready, but I don't know what to do to start off.
Can anyone help me, since this is my first contribution to this effort.
