Tooling Enhancements

Requests for enhancements to an existing tool should be added to that tool's GForge tracker. The standard GForge project for each tool should have "Bugs", "Support Requests", and "Feature Requests" trackers. This is also addressed in the publication on Tooling Requirements on GForge
