Ok so I'd like to move this tutorial to the wiki. To do this I need a
place for pics.

Do we also want to put developers guidelines and/or GitHub tutorial in
the docs (which means putting the images somewhere in docs) or should
they stay only in the Wiki (which means creating an empty branch 'wiki'
and putting the images there)?

I'd probably vote for option 2. Plus adding direct links to Guidelines
and Contribution Tutorial in the README.
