I'm certainly opening to moving contrib.

Well, there is actually a decent log entry for it:

commit 8ae9c34707bcd3d06d9856bc71003cc306b9c912

    Add a 'guide' file for acme(1).
    If we ever find more than one acme user working on the source,
    the single-guide-file premise might need a review.
    Ultimately, there should be a way for the configure script to
    search for and import a personal guide file from the developer's
    $HOME or some such.  The next person to come along can figure
    that out.
