Currently there are many help contents that obsolete or inaccurate.
But wrt the string freeze, we couldn't release the fix of them
(because they all must happen in master), and user have to wait for
the next 3.x major release to have them correct, which is every
too-long six months.

- may we freeze only UI string, but not help? (but it's harder to
manage, though)
- or update the wikihelp more frequently? (but this doesn't update
localhelp, which maybe essential for some users)
- or just leave it as is?

What is the process for other projects?
