Once we have text, it needs to be gettext'ed so it can go into Pootle? That's the part I'm not familiar with. And I'm assuming Kris has to do some KDE mumbo jumbo so that the help test gets associated with the correct menu, or does Pootle take care of that?

Yea, those would need some juggling around to make them get indexed from
the correct places. With us moving away from 'system-settings' though,
that may not be as big of an issue. I'd say we can start writing
help-text, then we can include them in whatever settings tool we end up
writing / using. (I'll probably put the text in SVN as well, so it gets
translated via Pootle and imported back in automatically)
