Well you know I cannot provide a solution, at least not within the
timeframe given.

To me it would be a show stopper if the sidebar contains no help while the
old parts has help, or even worse non-translated help.

Asking for a proposal is very fair.

My top goal is to be consistent, so either:
1) someone from doc. or elsewhere works on online help for the sidebar, I
can with my limited knowledge help with the integration.
2) or we remove online help completly, stating it is being reworked.

Our users are used to online help, and with a big new feature like the
sidebar, for sure many of them will seek online help in the way they are
used to, and be confused why the old features have help and the new
important one hasnt.

To me this a very important issue:

do we want to keep a dealine for the sake of the deadline and sacrife our
users, or do we want to release a "professional" product. In my mind there
are no doubt about the answer.

But of course it is not my opinion alone that counts, so lets have a
discussion...feel free to convince me why my point of view is wrong.
