Update CONTRIBUTION.md for new release policy

Description

At the time of writing CONTRIBUTION.md states that when a new version of gem5 is to be released, a staging branch is created, and people may "fix" this to-be-released drafts by submitting changes to develop and merging from develop into the staging branch. I realize now this is a very funny way to do things. Instead, last-minute changes should be made on top of the staging branch and the staging branch merged into develop and master upon a release. CONTRIBUTING.md should be updated to reflect this.
