Educating developers about Slicer dashboard

Today I was approached by a developer who has an existing extension published, but didn’t know about Slicer dashboard existence.

Trying to put myself into a new developer shoes, I went over some of the getting started materials, and indeed there was no mentioning of the dashboard there, so I made the following changes to the wiki:

https://www.slicer.org/w/index.php?title=Documentation%2FNightly%2FDevelopers%2FTutorials%2FBuildTestPackageDistributeExtensions&type=revision&diff=51197&oldid=47413

https://www.slicer.org/w/index.php?title=Documentation%2FNightly%2FDevelopers%2FStartHere&type=revision&diff=51200&oldid=51030

I am sure it can be improved further, but I just wanted to bring attention to this, since it caught me by surprise that such an important resource was not even mentioned in the initial layers of the “Getting started” page.

Well done. I tweaked a little bit and explained how to use the direct link to avoid searching:
