I’ve been ignoring TLContrib for some time now, and I feel kind of bad 
about it. It needs updating to support the current and next TL releases.

In my defence, people have not exactly been pounding on my door demanding
action. I will try and find time to do some maintenance, but it would
be really nice if there was a volunteer willing to take over. TLContrib
consists of a bunch of perl scripts and a subversion backend for storage,
in case anyone is interested. If nobody jumps in, then I will try to do 
some work myself sometime next month.

Best wishes,
