One of the blessings/curses of any script that uses modules and themes, is that the various developers have different ways of looking at things, sometimes one module relies on another, some themes rely on modules, and some modules rely on themes. Add to this similarly named mods with different actions, and keeping things straight from an individual gallery admin's point of view can be quite a challenge.
What would be very helpful to me, and probably anyone else who takes advantage of the treasure chest of these plugins is if there is an admin notes log, to keep track of things in our own installation. Nothing fancy, just a page of rows, each with a date entered, subject line, and a notes box. This would allow gallery admins to keep their own installation components straight, and in a way that makes sense to them. By the very nature of these forums and the documentation, things are classified by what each piece does, rather than what pieces are needed to give desired results.
This notes area would allow us to group modules and/or themes according to what we're trying to do, as well as keep track of tricks and traps we encounter along the way, so when we do figure something out, there will be notes there to remind us.
