+Place downloaded and custom modules that extend your site functionality beyond
+Drupal core in this directory to ensure clean separation from core modules and
+to facilitate safe, self-contained code updates. Contributed modules from the
+Drupal community may be downloaded at
+It is safe to organize modules into subdirectories, such as "contrib" for
+contributed modules, and "custom" for custom modules. Note that if you move a
+module to a subdirectory after it has been enabled, you may need to clear the
+Drupal cache so that it can be found.
+In multisite configuration, modules found in this directory are available to
+all sites. Alternatively, the sites/your_site_name/modules directory pattern may
+be used to restrict modules to a specific site instance.
+Refer to the "Developing for Drupal" section of the README.txt in the Drupal
+root directory for further information on extending Drupal with custom modules.
