Focus of the introduction for programmers

Often there's someone who knows some programming and asks how (s)he
can help Ubuntu. Currently those people are mostly referred to the
MOTU: packaging. However, I'm not so sure if directing all programmers
to packaging is the best solution. Some people just want to write code
and the MOTU is not the right place to do this.

Maybe the introduction for developers should also mention the
possibilities for contributing code as well as packages. This would
require a wiki page providing a clear overview of all different
projects in Ubuntu you could contribute to, so it's easy to find what
projects you could work on.
