-The git repository contains a =contrib/= directory.  This directory is
-the playing field for any developer, also people who have not (yet)
-signed the papers with the FSF.  You are free to add files to this
-directory, implementing extensions, new link types etc.
+* The =contrib/= directory
 
-Also non-Lisp extensions like scripts to process Org files in different
-ways are welcome in this directory.  You should provide documentation
-with your extensions, at least in the form of commentary in the file,
-better on worg.  Please discuss your extensions on
-[[mailto:emacs-orgmode@gnu.org][emacs-orgmode@gnu.org]].
+The git repository used to contain a =contrib/= directory, which was
+moved to https://git.sr.ht/~bzg/org-contrib before Org 9.5, which see.
 
-After files have been tested in =contrib/= and found to be generally
-useful, we may decide to clarify copyright questions and then move the
-file into the Org mode core.  This means they will be moved up to the
-root directory and will also eventually be added to GNU Emacs git
-repository.  The final decision about this rests with the maintainer.
