This was motivated by a user who wanted to delete a git fork, and needed guidance to find it in the user tools area. This is not an obvious thing at all and only makes sense if you understand the internal allura organization. It seemed there was a simpler way (item #4) we could direct him to it. The rest of these items I discovered while writing up #4
1. https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/profile/ : From this page, it is not clear that to edit a tool, I have to pick [Add Tools]. The button should be called [Edit Tools] and one would assume that you can add tools from there.
2. There should be a page you can generate for every installed tool which would just contain a list of commands--the same list of commands printed for every tool at https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/admin/tools . For example, https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/admin/my-git-fork/tools . This will be useful for item #4
3. For the git tool, https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/admin/tools there is no way to get to the actual fork page. This is odd, because from https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/profile/ , I could only get to the actual fork page. There should be a command on the git tool called: Visit Fork Page
4. There is no way to way to delete a git fork from the fork's page. There is a little list of commands (fork, request merge), but some users expect the full assortment of commands (which are currently only visible from the tools administration page) to appear here. A simple way to effect this would be to add a link to the fork page called [ Config ] or [ Admin ] which would take you to the appropriate place in the tools administration. Now, the ideal destination for this link is the https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/admin/my-git-fork/tools described in item #2. If it goes to https://sourceforge.net/u/zeromus/admin/tools instead, then the user is forced to look through unrelated administration stuff before finding the options for the git repository/fork that he was just looking at. However... it's not the end of the world.
