Description of problem:
When you look at the help page for gnome-power-manager statistics. You will note that the picture and all the text refer to the stuff that is on the "history" tab and there isn't a word at all about the things that are under the "statistics" tab. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
the statistics link in the gnome-power-manager help document help page takes information about the "history" tab.

Expected results:
the statistics link takes you to a new section of the help document page about the graphs which are under the statistics tab and the current documentation about the graphs that are under the history tab are put under a new heading for history.

Reproducer steps:

Fire up gnome-power-manager
Click the "Help" Button
When the help page comes up, click the "statistics" link.
Note that everything on that page talks about what's on the "History"
tab, and not what's in the "statistics" tab.

Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2010-05-11 09:41:39 UTC
I see what you mean, but the "Statistics" in the menu bar refers to the application "Power Statistics" which contains three types of information, stats, history and general info. I agree the wording of the menu item and the title on the side panel are not great.

I also thing this will be very difficult to change, as upstream we are in string freeze for gnome-2-28.

What is string freeze?
Can we add it locally and then push it in 2.30

> What is string freeze?

String freeze is where you're not allowed to change strings after a certain time as it breaks the existing translations and screenshots.

> Can we add it locally and then push it in 2.30

No, 2.30 cannot have localized strings changed. I'm also pretty sure we are too close to RHEL 6 to be changing things like this locally, and getting all the translators to re-translate the wording. Sorry.

If you want this fixed for RHEL 7 then it would be best if you could contribute help content to the upstream project and I'll ensure any patches are reviewed and committed as required. I think that's the best I can do, sorry.
