Extensions that sit close to the core, or provide services for other extensions
Foswiki contribs extend the functionality of Foswiki, in a lower-level way than plugins and add-ons. They may also provide alternative implementations for sections of the Foswiki core e.g. user management, or when an extension just can't be implemented as a plugin because it requires very close access to Foswiki internals.
An example is the MailerContrib
, which implements mail notification of topics changes.
