Only open ticket is patch #4936, and that's only open for S2_6 and later => closing.

Raised patch #5818 for improving disaster help. I don't expect it to make 2.5.0.

Everything mentioned in comments so far except disasters is being dealt with by an attached patch.

Documentation on trade routes needs generalising, as restrictions, quantities, and bonuses are no longer hardcoded.

Not sure what to do with the now variable-information such as that on bonuses. Currently looking to move it into ruleset Caravan help, but it sits a bit awkwardly.

Help for IgTer needs improvement:

"* Ignores terrain effects (treats all tiles as roads)."

"Modifying Combat Rules" still claims that killstack is a ruleset setting; it's now a server setting.

Acknowledge that the possibility of civil war is ruleset-dependent (patch #3818).

Help on "Combat" needs an overhaul in light of the combat bonuses framework (patch #3548).

Various references in helpdata.txt to 'default ruleset'. Should probably now refer to 'classic ruleset'.

Since the term 'native' is now in wider use in autogenerated help text, it should probably be explained in helpdata.txt.

There's nowhere for disasters to appear in the online help.

Not sure what to do about this. Having a new "disasters" section seems like overkill.

In rulesets like civ1 where you can build something to prevent disasters, ruleset author could write in building help "Without this building your city may randomly be struck by plague, losing population." But some rulesets (e.g. alien) don't let the player do anything about the disaster, so there's nowhere natural for the ruleset author to document the disasters.
