Googling for 'edk2 pull request' did not find this wiki page:

Add it to for more discoverability

I tried submitting a PR to edk2:

It was auto closed with: `All checks passed. Auto close personal build.`

That confused me quite a bit. I could not understand what it was trying
to say. I looked at other successfully merged PRs, noticed some hits
about a 'push' label, but on looking to resubmit the PR it didn't seem
like I had permission to set labels. Googling did not turn up any explanatory
hits in the first two pages either. Eventually Laszlo pointed me in the
right direction though

A couple other suggestions to avoid that confusion

* Extend the mergify message to clarify PRs are largely only meant for
maintainers to use. Maybe point at the wiki page or

* Add a github new PR template with a comment giving more explanation: | 3 +++

+Contributor documentation is maintained on the wiki:
Does github display "" automatically?

Hm... If I check <>, there's an explicit reference to "" at the bottom of ""; seems to display "" only.

Is this patch useful without modifying "ReadMe.rst"?

... Actually, the section at

includes "How To Contribute" ->

Is that unhelpful (or difficult to find)?
