contrib/ directory should be cleaned up
contrib/ directory is full of files which are unmaintained and should not be in use. The few files which are known to be required by other parts of the Tor tarball should be moved elsewhere, either to a
etc/ directory or to a subdirectory of
contrib/ with a meaningful name, and documented.
Packaging files and their documentation belong in other repositories, unless Nick is willing to verify that they are still useful and document and maintain them.
