      Description

      This is an umbrella issue --

      There are several problems:

      * javadoc support missing from /help shortcuts

      * description of "/help shortcuts" in /help does not describe what it documents

      * automatic import missing from description of <fix>-v

      * the natural way to get documentation on a command, say the /list command would be "/help list", instead "/help /list" is required
