this is obviously wrong.  those 3 .info files (in 4.7.x) are clearly  
a mistake, since the .info files don't mean anything to drupal 4.7.x  
core.  a) the maintainers of those 3 modules didn't know what they  
were doing, and b) you don't understand what you're really looking for.

you need to (as tobias has already done) count the .info files in the  
DRUPAL-5 or HEAD branches of the contrib repository, since those are  
the only places where maintainers *should* add the .info files.

make sense?
