Where can I find information about contributing in ways other than code?

Other communities have non-code contribution types documented, does OpenStack? What are some ways I can be involved in the community that aren't pushing code or documentation?

To expand on the answer that @bernd-bausch gave. The first entry point you should visit is We love non-code contributors. OpenStack is a big project and there are many ways to contribute. Code is only 1 way.

The contributor guide, which is linked off the link Bernd mentioned, caters to not only code but other contributors as well. See the contents page:

If you specifically looking to contribute in a particular way that should point you in the right direction. If you're unsure but no it's non-code, then look at the non-code contributor section:

Last and definitely not least, we have a special interest group (SIG) comprised of people who want to help you, and anyone, get connected. We call ourselves the First Contact SIG. We can connect you with people in all the different projects and would love to help you contribute in anyway you can. More information on us can be found:

Feel free to hit up any of the First Contact SIG members, easiest way is here, mailing list or on IRC at #openstack-dev on freenode, noting that -dev in that context isn't code, if you make OpenStack better, then you're a dev ;)
