Thanks Jeff for bringing this up.
It is amazing to see the activity in contrib, this is just awesome but the
more it grows the more there's the risk to loose the track on what's in.
my +1 on everything and I should add, especially for @simod :)

* the commits should be squashed to 1

> No need to point fingers as this PR went through the process we have
> setup and was merged. We do however need to have some more guidelines
> about how contrib modules should be handled.
> After a quick chat with Simone and Ariel, I propose the following:
> * New contrib modules should be initially proposed as a GNIP and
> brought up on the list before submitting a PR
> * Contrib modules should go into the GEONODE_CONTRIB_APPS block in
> settings and _never_ be enabled by default.
> * Contrib modules should have their own requirements.txt and not add
> things to setup.py
> * Contrib modules should be verified to not break the build when
> enabled/disabled before merging
> * There should be minimal docs about what it does and how to use it
> etc. A README in the module is sufficient, a page in docs/
> Anything else I missed? Im +1 to keep the party going and looking
> forward to seeing interesting things in this part of the codebase, but
> we cant get sloppy.
