I think it is good to track patches, even small ones.
Still there are situations where I would want to mail a patch to the list.
Especially when I am in a process of changing or discussing a change
or I know I will commit this tomorrow anyway.
Otherwise, at the end of a working session, it is good to publish something
and a tracker can help a lot to create a mini-discussion place
for a specific change.

There is no specific quota (yet) as disc space is reasonable cheap (though
backspace is not). We might introduce a quota in the future.

I am not quite sure that I know what "Wiki Add-ons scripts & modules"
precisly are, but if this is useful for GRASS to track and reaonably
seperate from other things. By all means: Track it. :)
You can use the documentation space or another svn module if
a tracker is not appropriate, so there are enough possibility to model
a solution.
