contrib/README mentions clearly the expectation that these scripts
eventually move to the core once they mature. This is never going to
happen for these.

It also mentions that inactive ones would be proposed for removal, and
this one is clearly inactive. It has 9 commits (if you count the one
that changes the execution bit).

You think changing the execution bit of a file is considered "activity"?

That's nice. So you can just copy that into a README.

If you care about these scripts, it should be trivial for you to add at
least a few tests, souldn't it?

Please tell me how exactly will your work-flow be broken. More
specifically, tell me why your scripts cannot be moved outside of git,
like git-extras[1], git-deploy[2], git-ftp[3], and countless other
