The commentary and summary are also part of the metadata that *ELPA and
the Emacsmirror use.  There are several additional issues and I think
it's easiest if I just show you what I think the file should look like:

;;; Note:

;; This file, org-contrib.el, provides metadata for the (future)

;;; Code:

(provide 'org-contrib)

;;; org-contrib.el ends here
