I'll have to correct you here: windows support in the download files is
still present. You'll jsut have to download contrib-2.1.0.zip: there
have been no changes/bugfixes since then, which is why there is no
contrib download for 2.1.1 or 2.1.2.

However, since those releases, we have restructured our repository and
the contrib code (including windows support) is located in the main
repository now (and will be included in the main download from 2.2.0 on).

I'd suggest you to work with the current git master, not with the
released version: if you plan to contribute back code, this will have to
be on top of git master, not for one of the 2.1.x releases.
