Move convert-objects to contrib.
convert-objects was needed to convert from an old-style repository, which hashed the compressed contents and used a different date format. Such repositories are presumably no longer common and, if such conversions are necessary, should be done by writing a frontend for git-fast-import. Linus, the original author, is OK with moving it to contrib. Signed-off-by: Matt Kraai <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
