  contributing: Use word addon consistently (#929)

- Use addon as a word (replace all AddOn by addon).
- Remove git (Git) from title. No need to distinguish from Subversion. Use the word code, to distinguish it from documentation or from a place where binaries or such things would be uploaded.
- Simplify the sentences by removing repetitions of GRASS...addon... where repository is enough.
- Name the cloned directory just like the repo is named, but still be explicit.
- Mention the compilation with g.extension (other compilation instructions would still use some improvements).
- Use addon as an adjective and don't say addons modules.
- Consider scripts as modules (both C and Python can be a module, i.e., a tool).
- Mention RFC2 first, write access only at the end.
- Replace Track wiki links by GitHub source code where possible.
