The Contrib repository has been re-invented in CentOS 5.3 but it's
still not clear what it's for. From the official announce:

Given the widespread requests for user contributed packages directly
being hosted within the centos repositories, the contribs repository is
now back with CentOS-5.3. There are no packages yet, but over the next
few weeks we hope to have a policy and process in place that allows
users to submit and manage packages in the contrib repo.

Karan started to line it out on this:


recent centos-devel thread.
