How about rewriting the README then? Also as I said in another mail, we could split up the contrib/ area into multiple areas with narrow defined use-cases, i.e. staging/, Documentation/historicTools (the current contrib/examples section), 3rdPartyTools/, Bridges/ (for cooperating with other VCS). > > So this is a serious attempt at making sure we remain consistent through > the core and contrib/. > > Personally I would like to see everything in contrib/ have *at least* > some tests and documentation.
