Erm, actually, the devs do seem to think it is us, which I find fairly
logical. That's why they keep CC'ing me all bugs involving the
built-in help.

I guess we could currently consider me to be first custodian of
built-in help issues, although *anyone* is welcome to work on them.
I'll be happy to foster anyone wanting to tool up for the job.

Ah, OK. That brings us back to the original question: where are the Help source files? And related 
questions about how/where/when to write/edit the Help. Is this work all tracked through the 
issue/bug system? Devs say "here is a new or changed function or dialog box which needs Help 

I'd like to add something, even if (at this point) brief and general, to the Documentation 
Contributors Guide. I know little or nothing about it, but I do recall discussion at several times 
over the past year. And i know that, because the Help is shipped as part of the product, it's 
handled differently from the user guides and other docs we deal with here.
