These three are good place to start at.  You may find the output of
"git shortlog --no-merges --since=N.months contrib/subtree" and "git
blame contrib/subtree" also a good source of whom to ask for help.
As we said on this thread, this is a corner of the contrib/ section
that nobody seems to be actively working on, so if you really depend
on it working well, you might have to take the ownership of it ;-)
