Hi Fabien,

Your script looks very nice! This definitely saves many people some
work in writing their own checks.

We're trying to retire the contrib/ directory, since there are several
ways of hosting open source add-on scripts elsewhere these days.

This leaves the tools/ directory, but this can only contain APLv2 licenced
code. If you're willing to relience from GPLv3 to APLv2, I see no problem
adding your script somewhere under the tools/hook-scripts/ directory.
If you're unwilling to change the licence, we can endorse your script by
recommending it to users but we cannot ship it in Subversion releases.
