That language was intended to express the tzdb's project intent, which 
admittedly is not necessarily the same as how the project data are used. 
I'll try to remember to say this more explicitly next time.

It'd be odd to have CONTRIBUTING.md with some GitHub-specific text 
saying essentially "You're on GitHub and so are barking up the wrong 
tree", along with some other file *not* named CONTRIBUTING that gives 
advice about contributing.

Since the Markdown-enabled friendliness for GitHub doesn't matter much 
now that pulldown requests are "temporarily" prohibited, I'm becoming 
more inclined to go back to plain-text CONTRIBUTING.
