Not all contributions may include source.
I imagine some contributions will come as an archive of .class files,

How about: about-[contribution].xml, it's a little easier to read.

Not all contributions will have sources, so some may not need this.

How about README.txt, it's more common.

I may be misunderstanding this.
I'd imagine contributions to be code (source or binaries or...) that
various people provide, which we then either provide as is, or use bits
and pieces of to refactor in specific projects.
These projects then eventually become a part of Lucene (not core, but
The crawler+indexer may be one such project, and it may get its pieces
from various people's contributions.
