Providing feedback from another project where the website is backed by
Git, and the workflow for user contributions is documented

At the foot of every page is a link "Edit this page on github" (eg:
http://manageiq.org/documentation/ ).

It's been a while since I looked, but my experience was that there were
very few clicks through to edit and PRs. Anecdotally, people didn't
realise they could propose edits this way.

Prominent wiki-like controls are important to getting drive-by edits,
and I am personally a fan of the in-place editing experience you get
from a good wiki.
