I was kind of leaving it intentionally vague (hence the 'for a while').
Do it till you get bored. :) I'm fine if you want to propose a tweak,
Oh, I missed/ignored the "for a while" part. OK, sounds reasonable. I'd
still make it clearer ("on each screen you visit"), but I don't have
problems with the vague version either.

Actually we intentionally took it out; we used to require that all apps
installed by default have a working Help, but it was one of those
polish requirements that seemed too onerous and no-one wanted to spend
their time checking and we'd perennially just waive at Go/No-Go anyway,
so we took it out. Some GNOME apps do not in fact have Help, e.g.
Yeah, I really didn't want to extend this to every app's Help. Just the main
system one, e.g. if you type "help" in gnome overview. I believe that one should
be a blocker. But it should also be covered by "default app functionality"
criterion, so no additions needed, I believe.
