Both the Fedora package and the vendor's package build script rely on "setup.py install" to install the majority of packaged files, and Ansible's setup.py doesn't appear to do anything with the contrib directory, where the dynamic inventory scripts live. It doesn't look like the decision to omit those files was made by downstream packagers. My understanding is that those scripts are intended to be modified to fit the environment where they're used. It *might* be useful to include them as "documentation" in the rpm package, but that doesn't seem like it would save much over making them available via the source repository.
