I agree with you completely. There are a lot of ways to contribute other 
than code. But what I feel the code or shutup thing means is - do what 
you want to do to contribute, and don't think you have the authority to 
tell someone else what they should do.

I think it's nice when people are receptive to ideas, suggestions and 
feedback on what they're working on, but all too often people harp on 
features they want, and complain when they don't get them.
