I like the idea.

Is that what is labeled 'postscript' under GRASS Component?  Would
calling it 'documentation' or something similar be more intuitive to the
general user or is it for something different?

Does GForge have the ability to pull up different form elements for
different components?  For example, changing the component to a doc bug
would refresh with (please, no DHTML or excessive JavaScript) inputs for
CVS dtime.  That would be nice and keep clutter to a minimum, but may
also be a pain to develop and implement.  WYSIWYG across all browsers is
not for the weak and impatient. :-)

Are there two bug trackers?  One for code and one for docs?  Am I
interpreting that right?
