Here is a rough draft - if you have any comments or suggestions, I'd be happy to take them.

> The page has misleading/bad info. One thing I would like to do - but I won't attempt
now (prob good for the modules issue) - is commit to one word - contrib or sandbox. I think
sandbox should be purged myself.
> The current page says that the sandbox is kind of a rats nest with various early stage
software that one day may make it into core - that info is outdated I think. We should replace
it, and also specify how the back compat policy works in contrib eg each contrib can have
its own policy, with the default being no policy.
> We should also drop the piece about being open to Lucene's committers and others - a
bit outdated.
> We should also either include the other contribs, or change the wording to indicate that
the list is only a sampling of the many contribs.
