I've added some information to the page including pointing people at
the "Common Uses of Drupal and Required Skills" page which has similar
content.  I also explained several ways to find developers/advertise
jobs which is somewhat redundant with other sections of the handbook.

That makes plenty of sense.  After adding to the page I kind of got
the feeling that aside from this point the rest of the content is
relatively redundant with other information, but maybe I just
misunderstood your intentions with the page.

Sorry - I forgot this part and just edited directly.  Feel free to
revert my changes if they are headed in a different direction than you
