Move contrib/ to apache-extras.org

I'd like to move everything in our contrib/ directory to the new
Apache Extras hosting.

As many might know, I've been on a personal crusade to stop the
Subversion project from being a source code hosting system. In the
early days, when it was useful for people to have a collection of
Subversion-related scripts, contrib/ was valuable, but with search
engines and hosting providers, it seems redundant for us to continue
hosting contrib/. Because of the variety of licensing situations, we
don't even ship it anymore.

Apache Extras is an ASF-branded instance of Google code where related
projects can live. These scripts and tools can live there, but still
be related to the Subversion project (as well as any other new tools
which chose to go there).
