Ah yes, I should’ve mentioned earlier that this is totally a POC.
There are lots missing, don’t worry! :)

You would come back to the main contributor portal and click on a
different contribution. How about at the end of each lesson it gives
them the option to go back to main contributor portal to pick another
way to contribute?

That’s a good question. I think it should probably on top contain the
more general stuff, then in alphabetical order we can list resources
for all contribution types? It can be like the “I want to contribute
to OpenStack by…” top piece, but instead lists resource links to pick
through based on your contribution type(s). Maybe we keep them as
separate pages as originally given in the mock up so it’s not overly

Thanks for the help Amy!
