Dustin, I think it's just a matter of getting these directories
packaged up into the Buildbot source tarballs (which would be
independent of the packaging system). In Trac, we might also want to
distinguish between distro packaging (.debs, RPMs, etc.) and the
Python packaging side (distutils/setuptools/whatever it's called these

The directories are missing from rc2 as well. Something probably needs
to be modified in setup.py to point back to the top-level docs and
contrib directories.
