Hi all, For the record: - All Processing help pull-requests have now got at least one round of review. - Processing help files have been renamed to match groupId so pushing any algorithm help button should lead you at least to the page it "is" documented. You will not always directly get the algorithm section (it fails if name is not a single word like clip, intersection...) but I wonder if that's really an issue given that at the top of each page we have the TOC listing all provided algorithms --> you just need one more click. @Richard, did you have time to investigate the id span thingies you were referring to last day? Is it worth the effort? Could that live together with our current .. _qgis_clip: anchor?
For me, processing help system is fixed but the help system itself is not. It still suffers from suffers obstacles which it puts on the capacity of the writers to update the user manual without complications: section URLs are currently hard coded in application and changing a section title (hence the url) breaks the help button. With a living doc like the user manual, with all the new features and improvements QGIS gets, it would be hard to keep same titles at same place forever (either because it no longer describes new features of the dialog, or the dialog gets renamed, or features are moved to another place, or we find a better, more appropriate wording, or...) and documenters should not care about that. For information we have pending PRs in docs that will break some of the already connected links. Developers improve the application, documenters improve the manuals and we find a way to keep links working as long as possible without anyone stressing. Please, let's do something more sustainable! Thanks.
