Hi :)
I think we are all aiming at unambiguous, consistent terms.  Sophie's
3 suggestions and their separation seem to achieve the objective.  Can
we stick with that?

I think the confusion arises because the help is also available as a
wiki but even so it might be best to avoid calling that "the wiki" and
maybe use something like "the help wiki"(?) instead.  I don't really
have a good suggestion for it and haven't thought about it much.
Hopefully someone gives an idea that we all think is obvious after
they have suggested it.

Btw thanks Robinson for realising what i meant and putting it so much
more clearly.  I hadn't got as far as thinking about internal/external
and i think those terms are unclear anyway.  Like the "local" it can
easily get confusing, for example in ssh hopping the one i'm thinking
of as local might be a remote machine.
Regards from
Tom :)

There use to be some non ambiguous terms:

help for help files
support for support
guides, how-to, faq... for documentation

This is still the used terms for a lot of users whatever the localization.
Why not fit to that?


My big focus is standardization. I just want to have one consistent
name across the board.
