    public interface IContributor
    This interface describes a registry contributor - an entity that supplies information to the extension registry.

    Registry contributor objects can be obtained by calling IExtensionPoint.getContributor(), IExtension.getContributor(), and IConfigurationElement.getContributor(). Alternatively, a contributor factory appropriate for the registry in use can be called to directly obtain an IContributor object.
