PowerSchill: ## Is the Cmdlet Help Editor on CodePlex?

Jeff_Hicks: ##Is there a help style guide for other teams writing help? Or perhaps for the community?

alexandair: ## right now updatable help files and help topics on TechNet are not in sync. will that change by GA?

Jeff_Hicks: ##is there a way to download help for a module I don't have, but a server might so that I can update help locally?

Jeff_Hicks: ##for example I have a scheduled job from Win8 to download help. But I want to update help for modules on a Windows 2012 box as well so it can update help locally.

alexandair: ## there are still a lot of formatting issues in online help. should community report that on Connect?
