If we have just one place, there will be less risk of one of them
becoming outdated.

I don't really see enough differences to justify an extra file.

I think admin/notes/repo is just a historic accident: it was created
when we migrated to Git, when we didn't yet have CONTRIBUTE.

I don't see how we can avoid duplication if we want each of these two
files be self-contained.

I'm not going to fight if someone wants to leave admin/notes/repo
alone, but the confusion such as this one will IMO continue until we
resolve the duplication.
