That's never been quite the definition of our contrib/ area. Historically,
anything useful to Subversion users that the Subversion devs were willing to
collectively maintain (and that's the key phrase here) was placed into
tools/; it was the stuff that we were *not* willing to maintain that got
dumped into contrib/ for lack of a better place. We no longer lack a better
place thanks to the Apache Extras project, so our contrib/ area should, at a
minimum, be closed to further additions. And we should gradually seek to
move stuff that currently lives there either into tools/ proper (where we
will accept responsibility for maintenance) or into Extras projects.
