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 ;-) Thanks.
