You're welcome.

Yes, indeed.

vm173 is work in progress.

As opposed to the old OpenOffice.org at SUN's times, I am not aware of
the doc's/spec's of any feature unique to LibreOffice. At best, some
senior developers write the help pages or blog posts, which is much
appreciated, but it is not the rule. Therefore, volunteers pick the
features and, with trial and error, sweat, devotion and abnegation,
write on the subject.

> b) What infrastructure is needed to help with help files?

There are 3 ways to edit help files. All need a copy of the helpconten2/
module git in the local machine.

1) using the HelpAuthoring extension. See

2) an experimental on-line text editor in vm173

3) plain text edition in your local copy of helpcontent2/

For 2) write me offline to get a login.

Kind regards
