Doesn't look like a minefield to me. Just messy. :-)

I hope everything still works because after R14.0.0 is released I want to learn more about using those tools.

Is anybody in this project using TDevelop?

I checked my 3.5.10 setup and the help handbook is empty there too. Seems then that compiling the help files has been broken for a while. Looking at the sources reveals a significant number of docbook files --- we just need to compile them (and review them :-)).

I notice there is no CMakeLists.txt file in the tdevelop/doc directory, which partially explains why the files are not compiled.
