I did some editing on the Join Page[1] and stripped the following:

* Reference to downloading the client-side SSL cert from FAS, which I
think is now exclusively used by packagers. (I may be wrong, feel free
to correct me)
* Reference to creating a SSH key. Creating an SSH key, while
important for docs-writers, isn't a requirement for docs, and
something that could likely be handled easier with some hand holding
rather than being listed as a requirement before getting to put your
toes in the water.

Additionally - I'd like to solicity input on removing d-c-l from the
requirements list. d-c-l has a ton of traffic near release (I've had
days where I've generated 400+ messages to d-c-l, and John has had
days that make mine pale by comparison.) I fear that the unsuspecting
new contributor will be overwhelmed with messages, and feel
overwhelmed by joining. Anyone think that this should be abolished, or
should we just add an admon??
