Today the console-plugin online help is delivered as OSGi fragments which then attach to the console plugins. If the fragments are not available, no help will be available. This is not desirable. The help for default locale should be part of the plugin jar itself. This is how CLI jars are also built. By merging the help content with plugins, we will reduce no. of unnecessary modules as well.
I am being told that there is an effort to redesign the console. Such an effort should address this issue.
