Adds CONTRIBUTE.md file

Initial version of the CONTRIBUTE.md file explains the CLA 
requirement for contributors, having one or more issue for each 
significant merge request, and the Governance of this project. 
This assumes that no GOVERNANCE.md file is also going to be 
included at this time.

## How to contribute
***CLA***: Contributors must obtain valid and applicable [CLA](https://opensource.ieee.org/community/cla/apache)
number from the IEEE. Instructions for submitting a CLA are on the CLA document
itself (please do not share your CLA number with others).
If you wish to make a significant contribution, such as creating a new file
or set of files, then please make sure that all marge requests are associated
with one or more issues. If an issue does not exist, then please create one
that explains the general need, requirement, or problem you wish to solve.
