Hi Chad,  

I've started sketching out contribution instructions and guidelines here:

https://github.com/basho/riak_control/wiki/Contributing-to-Riak-Control

I'd appreciate any feedback on how this could be clearer, or more helpful.

In regards to the roadmap, once we decide which features will be targeted for the next release, I'll have issues created for each of these on the GitHub project, which will be publicly visible.

I understand that Riak Control was going to have object-browsing features, but they have been pushed-back and/or abandoned. Is there a data browser out there that is easy to use and provides features similar to Futon? I've looked at Rekon, and it just isn't very useful IMO.
