A name change would be an improvement.
I see your point about not complicating navigation for existing
participants. However, having a top level page that basically free of
content, as the participation page is now, is a waste.
Would moving the minutes and spec development links to the top of the
partcipation page and then adding a "Getting Started" section below
those links work? It would make the navigation links for on going
participation even easier to get to than they are now. And it would be
really obvious for potential participants how to go about getting started.

I'm responsible for the hierarchy, so I'll weigh in. I'd rather change
the name to "Getting Started" or something like that (if it's the
"Guidelines" that bothers you) rather than moving it. I understand it
takes an extra click, but the page contains information that one no
longer needs once signed up and familiar, so why make everyone keep
looking at it?
I'm not hard over on this, but I do think it's better where it is.

Does anyone object to moving the content of
<http://www.spdx.org/wiki/spdx/participation-guidelines> to the main
participation page, <http://www.spdx.org/node/2240>? A page named
"guidelines" seems more like a code of conduct than a page containing
the details of how one would go about participating. And the extra
click seem unnecessary.

Sweet, thanks. I added a link to the participation guidelines page in
the wiki. Hopefully one more link will make google pick it up.
