PD help pages edit
- Audience. Help pages are aimed at novice users. This business of "The ability to filter by user was added in bugzilla:6448." has no place in these help pages.
- Mechanism. Still not imported into new wikis. Options:
- Move all help pages to system messages to be translated in translatewiki.net together with the interface. Better consistency, harder to improve. Help pages would exist on the release wiki and would just have containers to display the system messages. Admins of the local wiki could just let them be, customise the system messages just like any other message, or change them entirely to redirect to a customised page on the Help (one system message per page could tell Mediawiki to get the contents of that page elsewhere - others could be there but empty, to allow the admins to add wiki-specific own content).
